Dr. Visits galore

Yesterday we saw the ENT. Crew's tonsillectomy was a success and his tubes look good. I had a nice visit with the Dr. about what this "progressive hearing loss" might mean for our future. I love going to The Lodge for appointments. It's only 1/2 mile away instead of the usual 30-60 minute drive. I took the walker and Crew loved "crewsin" around. When it was time to go home he threw a fit. Then, I drove him down to Walmart so he could practice navigating his walker. Taking the walker out in public is a post for another day.

Today was Opthalmology. We made the trek to the Childrens Hospital. In the waiting room I met a mother and her quadruplets! Whoa, that is so amazing. The quads are 4 years old and look great.

The eye appointment went well and Dr. whats-his-name gave a good report. The eyes are straight. Yeah! I updated him on the hearing loss and asked if he thought Crew was eligible for a deaf/blind intervener. He agreed that it would be to Crew's benefit to get one. He dictated a letter regarding the vision loss which I should receive in a week. I don't know what will come of it but its worth a try;) Thanks Lisa for helping me get tough!

Tomorrow..... Physical Therapy and Audiology for Crewman. Chiropractor for me:)


  1. Doctor appointments in BULK!
    Glad all is going well! Enjoy the chiropractor tomorrow! ;)

  2. Wow, what a productive day!! I am so glad you may be able to get an intervener for Crew! What exactly does an intervener do? Jack is vision impaired -- but his hearing to our knowledge is okay. I'd be interested in learning more.

  3. Good luck, my darling. I am so sorry that life can suck.

    My prayers are with you and your little boy.

    I sure love you

  4. You're awesome Mel. You really are.
    I nominated you for the Thinking Blogger Award. You can read about it on my blog.

  5. You are awesome... one busy momma! Crew is lucky to have you.
