Me (on the phone with the pediatric neurologist, trying to schedule an appointment for Austin): My son has been referred for an appointment to see the neurologist. He had an episode of blanking out and vomiting, accompanied by memory loss, this past Friday.
Scheduler: Yes, ma'am. I just need some information. We are currently booking into 2009.
Me (cringing and thinking I'm going to have to call the developmental ped and see if they can pull strings): Ok, thank you, his name is .... (and I go on to give them the information)
Scheduler: And the referring physician's name?
Me: Dr. ____ (our developmental ped)
Scheduler: One moment please. ::puts me on hold::
New person talking to me: Ma'am, I'm sorry but the earliest I have is September 10th.
New scheduler: 2008, ma'am.
Dang.... he's good! LOL That alone is quite possibly worth all the expense of his appointments!
So that appointment is scheduled. Now we just have to wait for it to get here. And hopefully get some answers!
