Yesterday was a busy hustle and bustle kind of day, and it was finished off with a very frank and honest discussion with the gastro. To make a very long story short, we agreed that due to the level of need and amount of communication needed between his specialists, Braden needs to have all of his medical care consolidated to Birmingham Children’s Hospital. I honestly appreciate the doctor’s honesty, frankness, and integrity. If you are reading this sir, know that I respect you for yesterday.
We are confident that his medical care will be placed in good hands, but we can’t help be a bit sad. Birmingham is an hour and a half away from where we live. A heck of a drive for a doctor’s visit! So, it’s a bit of a drive. It also happens to be a children’s hospital, and no matter how you slice it visiting a children’s hospital is difficult emotionally.
We are currently awaiting appointments for pulmonology, gastroenterology, and urology. We have an immunology appointment scheduled there next month. So, doctors, doctors, and more doctors. We will know more information after those appointments. Until then, we wait and enjoy this beautiful Alabama weather. Ok, beautiful until it started to pour a few minutes ago!
