Y'all remember when I used to be funny? Generated lots of lols. Got tons of hits every day. Then I got all serious. I'm still funny on Twitter and Facebook though, I swear, so it's not totally gone. But all I do here is whine.
Case in point: I AM STRESSED THE HELL OUT.
I have been concerned for some time about the frequency with which Ace gets fevers. I brought it up to his doctor. She sent us to a pediatric endocrinologist. Y'all remember how that went. So she set us up with another endocrinologist, who we are not supposed to see till October. In the meantime, Ace got another fever, with virtually no other symptoms. I took him to the doctor, who said "hmm, lemme call the endocrinologist and see what he thinks." The endocrinologist ordered some blood tests. Ace got the blood tests on Monday.
Yesterday, I called my pediatrician to see if the results were back yet. She said that his cortisol levels were low, but she doesn't know what that means, and she was going to call the endocrinologist to find out what he wanted to do with the results, and she'd call me back today.
I called today and left a message that I noticed that Ace has been falling a LOT more than usual lately, and asked if that may be related in some way to the cortisol levels. She called me back and said she hadn't yet heard from the endocrinologist, but his pediatrician wants him to have an MRI to see if anything has changed since the last MRI.
I can't link since I'm on my phone, but Ace's last MRI was a complete nightmare.
She called again to say that the nurse at the endocrinologist's office had received the results, and was going to pass them along to the endocrinologist.
So now I still have no damn answers, and my baby has to have another MRI. He has to be put completely under for an MRI. The appointment is at 2, which means he can't eat after 8. It's also on his 2nd day of school, so he'll have to miss that day. CRAP.
Also, my stepmom called me last night and told me that my niece has MRSA. Naturally I googled it, saw that it's a staph infection that's resistant to antibiotics, and then I read that it can be fatal, and I stopped googling.
I am stressed out. I am really stressed out.
