Doctor's Appointments Yuck!

Tomorrow is the big day.  We're taking Carter to see what the status is on his Adrenal Hemorrhage. We have an appointment to have the ultrasound done in the afternoon followed by an appointment with his Urologist and ENT.  The ENT obviously has nothing to do with the Hemorrhage, but they had an opening so we decided to try and kill two birds with one stone.

Have I mentioned lately that I really hate doctor's appointments?  I mean, I know that they are what is best for Carter, but I still hate them. Among many things, I hate the nervousness that I feel before we go to them. Our little experience with the plastic surgeon last week is exactly what I'm talking about. Not knowing if we're going to find out something new about Carter's condition gets to me every time. It scares me to think that he'll have to have additional surgeries.  I'm not naive... I know that new things are going to come up, but it's the feeling of waiting for the other shoe to drop.

These next two weeks are full of appointments that I'm especially nervous for. Tomorrow, I'm nervous for the ultrasound because I REALLY want the hemorrhage to have cleared up on it's own.  Nervous for the Urology appointment because I'm hoping that his Kidneys look better from the last ultrasound.  Nervous for the ENT appointment because I plan to talk to him more about Carter's airway. I'm ready to move on from here.  Wish us luck! I'll update tomorrow when we get home.

Good luck tomorrow. I have never heard of an adrenal hemorrhage before. How does that happen?

They don't really know how C's happened. Stress? Change in blood pressure? We see Endocrinology next week.

Praying for you all today! I know how you feel about the doc. appointments. There does come a day when you pretty much know everything and then it gets much easier. That's been our experience. But until then, it really, really sucks.

Praying!!
