I just got a call from Dr. A, Brooklyn's pediatrician. I've been playing phone tag and waiting for calls from both him and Dr. G2 (the pulmonologist) all week. Dr. A said that Dr. G2 has studied Brooklyn's upper GI films and is "concerned that there may be a vascular ring." Apparently, the upper GI x-rays are not the greatest quality, and no one can really tell for sure.
We have Brooklyn's video swallow study tomorrow morning in Dallas. Both doctors believe that this will be able to show whether or not she has a vascular ring. I hope it really does tell them, one way or the other. We are so tired of putting our baby through all of these tests and procedures and not getting any answers.
Dr. A also said that "We didn't get many answers from the sleep study because it wasn't an ideal study." Um. Yeah, I could have told you that. I wonder what the report says...I told Dr. A that the sleep study was a nightmare, and he said, "Yeah, that's what I heard."
So. Test tomorrow. I hope, hope, HOPE we get some answers from it. Please, just someone tell me what is wrong with my sweet baby and tell us what we can do to fix it. That's all I want.
And briefly....my other unrelated frustrations of the day....
1.) I had my annual check up with my OB/GYN today. I weigh nearly 5 pounds more than I did at my 6 week postpartum visit (4 months ago). Lovely.
2.)The human resources lady has not called me back (again) and I don't know what to do. We now have to go to Dallas next Tuesday to see the pediatric gastroenterologist. It will be almost completely without pay as I have one hour of vacation and sick time now.
3.) I got into a hurry and left the house this morning without kissing Brooklyn and telling her goodbye and that I love her. This is the first time I have ever done that. I feel so guilty about it. What a horrible thing for a mommy to do. I almost turned my car around and went back when I realized it, but I was already running 15 minutes late. I should have just gone back. I am so sad about it.
