Moving Right Along

Well, it's now 4:30 and Caleb and I are at the hospital just waiting. We've been here since 7:30 this morning. They were supposed to start his sedation at 9:30, but the doctor really didn't want to do it and said she wouldn't do it again if he wouldn't leave the leads on. That started the tone for the morning with her.

I had provided all the health history to the person who called on Thursday to do the pre-sedation stuff. But at 8:10 this morning they decided they needed to get the pediatric cardiologist's report from Caleb's last echocardiogram and then wanted to get the records regarding his reaction coming out of the anesthesia during his surgeries. Then after once again discussing his health history she made an off-hand remark to the nurse that it was getting more difficult as it went along. Well, I'm sorry my son has had asthma, has had a doctor concerned with the size of his heart, the fact that he's had difficulty with waking up from anesthetic in the past. Normally you wouldn't be able to get near him with an air gun, but today, for whatever reason, he surprised me by allowing them to do it. The techs were absolutely wonderful with him!!!

So here we sit with the leads attached to his head and him coloring waiting for something to show, hoping it shows sooner rather than later, hoping we get some answers.
