I got an appointment for the more “holistic” pediatrician in our area (yes, there really is only one). I was chatting with one of M’s classmate’s moms, asking her which pediatrician they use. Lo and behold, she said they just switched to this doctor, too! They are looking for a good mix of traditional and alternative medicine. I’m super excited to see him, but it won’t be until the 2nd week of October. Sounds like he’s doing a booming business!
Tomorrow I go back to the child behavioral specialist without M. I’m looking forward to getting her opinion about seeing the OT. I haven’t made an appointment yet with them because I’m hoping that with a doctor’s referral insurance will cover at least the assessment. And I re-applied to our county’s early intervention program as well, just in case I need a referral from them. I don’t want her to go to a million appointments, I just hope I don’t have to pay out-of-pocket.
So, I’ve been working evening shifts this week and it sucks. I gave M’s teachers a head’s up… she tends to be whinier or cry at school when she doesn’t see me for several days. I worked all weekend, AND I work three evening shifts this week. So that’s almost a whole week without me! The teacher told me she was crying for me in school… It breaks my heart. I’m pissy in general about being rotated to evening shifts, especially with a low patient census currently. I can’t wait to get this last eve over with!

Yay doctor! Boo work 😦 There is only one doctor up by me who is known for being down with more holistic or alternative things. I tried for so long to get in with them. Now they don’t take Medicaid at all. Ugh.
It’s awful how little choice you have with medicaid. I had to drive M out of the county just to get her a decent wellness check!
