getting a call that after several months of asking the doctor has finally agreed to send Olivia to a dermatologist!!! I can't believe how ego's get in the way!!! This poor baby is covered from scalp to ankles with what looks like excema shei is constantly moving trying to scratch her little back, she has scratched her face, head, arms and legs til they bleed.. We have to rub her with creams to keep the creases of her little body from cracking open, Through all this my little sweetie, talks to you, smiles anytime you look at her and laughs out loud. I got so angry that I threatened to take Olivia in myself the other day. Her mom had tried and tried but the doc just kept putting her off. This baby even moans and scratches in her sleep. I just don't understand how anyone can think they are so important that they couldn't possibly be mistaken, how can you not refer a child to a specialist? Beats the heck out of me..My theory the GOD syndrome most doc's have it!!! Sorry if I've stepped on toes here, but this baby deserves better than what she has gotten so far in her little life..Thankfully, the little call someone made did the trick and Olivia has her apointment next week!!!
Smiling yes, still miffed at the doctor you BET!!!

I'm betting that little call was made by you, kadesma. Bravo.

Doctors here have seen my daughter for numerous recent minor irritations, so it's beyond my understanding why one would not refer a baby with what sounds like a serious condition!

Tuesday night, dancing with my sweetie to "Hear Comes the Sun", it was a memorial service for a friend of ours who was a drummer in a band that did a lot of rock/soul/blues covers. It was amazing to see all those people there, celebrating Nigel's spirit. In between tears, I was smiling so hard I thought my face would break.

Yes, it was me, got tired of excuse after excuse!!! I hate having to be nasty, but when it comes to these little ones, mine or someone elses, I'll fight to the end for them. I just think it's a case of hating to admit you don't know how to treat something and your ego won't let you give in!!! You know, anyone who can say, I'm not sure let's ask so and so and see if he/she can help us, has my undying gratitude and admiration.
