My doctor emailed yesterday me asking me about this offer ! She must really want me to come in. I know for a fact I’m going to take her up on this offer because it’s best to get as much practice as I can, but I told her I probably can’t do it until summer when school is out.
She said most the reason she wants me to come in is because alot of appointments with her, my dietitian and genetic counselor aren’t as happy as mine and my sisters are. She just says she wants to help me get ready in the best possible ways because she said there will be queit a bit of unhappy appointments. I can see totally where she is coming from because I’m pretty sure it’s hard when you first find out your child has a genetic disorder (and I’m sure most of you can recall this better then me, since I was a baby when this all happened). But she just wants to get me prepared for some of that stuff. nBreanna
