I told the nurse what she was like last night, just like i told you guys, i told her that she VERY non-chalantly told DH while she was taking a shower last night that it was hard to look down because it made her neck hurt (yet she would still do it). This was after she was feeling better. I told her this morning that she told me her arm feels tired and has since last night. I have no idea what that means and Nathalie couldn't really explain it any better than that. I don't even know if that is significant or not but now i feel like i should report anything and everything weird she reports.

    So with everything that keeps happening its like from my non-doctor stance I'm like waht is it? Migraines? Meningitis? Seizures? (I had childhood epilepsy)

    I feel like I"m just piling up all this information and the doctor needs to weed through it all and make heads or tails out of it. Figure out what is usesless unimportant information and what is significant. I have not told the doctor that I had childhood epilepsy...but I will mention it to her when I talk to her next.

    Good luck, Kim. Yes, the more info you give them the better. And of course you have to push for things and be insistent (but nice), and definitely get someone on the administrative side to be on your side, to be the person you can call to help push paperwork/testing through, etc. I always find someone to befriend in the office who I know will keep an eye on the flow of test results and whatnot so nothing gets lost. It should not be hard to get someone to sympathize. Even the nicest doctors get overwhelmed and busy which is why the patients have to stay on top of things.

    (I once refused to leave my doctor's office until they gave me an ultrasound, I knew the technician was there, and so I got one and they found out I had to have my gall bladder taken out immediately. A few days later it was OUT!)

    I keep going back and forth. Part of me feels like this is a unique learning experience, the other part of me thinks that the traffic would be terrible, there will be protesters, and is it really worth the bother.

    I am so sorry that you are going through this. I know it is very difficult to have a sick child and not know what is wrong.

    Kim, I'm so sorry. That sounds so scary, not knowing what is going on with her. How old is Nathalie now? I hope you get answers soon, and ITA with Laurie that you should push (in a nice way) for answers.

    Bonita - I would probably do it if I was going to be in the area anyway, but I wouldn't make a special trip because of the hassle involved, and I do support the president.

    I am thinking about just having the girls watch the local news tonight. There will be full coverage I am sure. There has been minute by minute coverage already. This is the first time (I think) that he has been here in his campaigns or presidency. (There is no chance of this area going Blue)

    I'm so upset I met my son for lunch and his car was broken into while we were eating and they stole a backpack full of his stuff. There wasn't anything expensive in there but it had all his favorite shirts and clothes in there because he was coming home from staying with his Dad. So he is heartbroken poor kid. I feel bad for him. His Dad came over and helped him search the dumpsters in the area but they didn't find anything. It happened in a high crime area in Dallas so I'm sure its long gone, even though there wasn't anything in there that was valuable to anyone else.

    I'm so sorry. That sort of thing is very very upsetting.

    I was just telling this story this morning: a long time ago (15 years maybe?) a friend of mine had her bag stolen out of her car in NYC. She actually saw a guy walking around with her bag and she got SO angry that she ran up to him and tried to yank it out of his hands. She was furious and refused to let go and he tried to fight her to get it back and finally she was able to call over a police officer and he ran away.

    But you feel so violated when someone targets you like that. I'm sorry.
