"It's all in the Cookie"
Did I ever mention how much I HATE taking Sam for doctor's appointments??? He actually has been traveling quite well since we got The Leshin Family Truckster. But the doctor visits are just down right miserable and most of the time pretty negative experiences. So we went to this particular visit today and the doctor was really negative. According to her at this point Sam has not made any gains in the swallowing department and things don't look hopeful. Also did I mention that Sam is OFF continuous feeds. Yup you heard me. We can feed him 3 times a day and he has been doing great. Not only is he tolerating the feedings but he has never been more calm and happy and engaging even during PT and OT therapies. But according to this doctor Sam is extremely uncomfortable and I am nuts for feeding him the way I am. So I asked if she had any suggestion of what to do instead and guess what??? She didn't... OK thanks doc. After I left the appointment I felt awful, sick to my stomach, my whole world collapsing all around me, again. I just couldn't get it together the rest of the day. Scott came home and took over (what an amazing guy I have!). He even took the liberty to order us dinner - Chinese food. Guess what my fortune cookie said??? "The physician heals, nature makes well." Pretty apropo considering the day I had. But I have a better fortune, "The physician's a F#$%ing moron, and mama knows best!"
