I called again. The lady tried to tell me someone would call me back. I told her that this was my 4th phone call, with no call back, and that I would hold until someone could help me. She put me on hold, to go talk to the Dr.
She came back on the line and told me that Dr. Gunsberg is conferring with another Dr. on Pia's results, and that's what is taking so long. She promised that she (the Dr.) would call me back this afternoon.
I did finally talk to a nurse on Wed afternoon. She told me that the ped wanted to do an ultrasound and repeat the bloodwork. She said she would call me back with the info.
She never called.
Later that night, around 9, the ped called. I missed the damn phone call. I didn't figure she'd call that late. So, I had her paged and she again didn't call back. I waited patiently yesterday, no phone call. I called the office this AM, only to be told that they are closed today, for moving. They refused to page my ped, because she's not on call.
This is beyond ridiculous.
I haven't left the stupid house all week. Abel and I are on eachothers nerves because of stress. I can't sleep and I'm totally on edge.
I'm trying to stay positive, thinking that it's not life-threatening or else she'd be in the hospital. She's very healthy, and not at all jaundice. It's still very, very hard.
I honestly don't understand how this ped is still in practice. It's been a WEEK since I initially called. I have yet to talk to her.
I called again this AM, and held for 17 minutes, only to get the nurse ONCE AGAIN. She told me that the ped had tried to call me this weekend, and couldn't get ahold of me. I'm going to have to call bull**** on that one. I had the stupid phone with me all weekend, and no missed calls.
So, once again, waiting on a phone call that will likely not happen.
I'm thinking about reporting her to the medical board. This shouldn't be allowed to happen.
I have to vent about this. It's something that absolutely drives me insane.
Why on earth do mothers feel the need to judge other mothers?
I think that we should be lifting each other up, celebrating our accomplishments, learning from one another.
Instead, so many put others down for not doing things the way they do. It's not fair, it's rude and just plain ignorant.
I don't care what you do at home with your children. FF or BF, your baby is getting fed. Circ or no circ - doesn't bother me, not my penis! Spanking no spanking - good for you! CIO or not - whatever gets your LO to sleep for you. SAH, WOH - whatever makes you happy.
Outside of actual abuse, we should all mind our own business. We are all in the most amazing club - we're mothers. We brought life into this world. It's like the ultimate reason to bond together.
I do think it's human nature to judge others. But, can we please draw the line at motherhood?
Why is it that I couldn't wait for Arianna to start talking? Now, I'd give almost anything if she would be quiet for an hour. You really can't appreciate silence until you have a toddler.
She is such a struggle for me. I think it's because we are so much alike. Some days it's so incredibly hard to be her mother. She's so smart, funny, sweet and kind - but that's usually not the side I see. I know she loves me, but every once in a while, I'd like to feel like I've done something right by her.
You don't truly experience love, guilt, frustration, hurt and anger until you've had a child.
Arianna wouldn't tell me what she wanted for lunch, so I heated up a slice of pizza. I told her if she ate it all, she could have chips. Like 2 minutes later, she comes in and tells me it's bah - chips please.
I go in the kitchen to find that she's stuffed her piece back in the box and put her empty plate on the counter.
