Clearance Granted

Baby N's doctor signed a clearance for surgery tomorrow. Called surgeon's office and surgery still scheduled at 9am tomorrow.

You'll never guess who called L yesterday..

the nurse from the cleft team in New Orleans

Nurse: I was going through our files and I see you have not scheduled baby N for surgery

L: He is getting it done by another doctor. Lisa and I have been trying to call your office for 3 months to schedule surgery and kept getting the run around and told ya'll were booked up several months. While waiting, we scheduled consults with 2 other doctors, before ya'll returned our calls and he is having surgery on Friday.

Nurse: If he can get you in Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, will you let him do the surgery?

L: Nope!

Two hours later the doctor calls. Him and L have words, but basically L told him he was a good doctor and was looking forward to working with him, but we kept getting the run around from his staff about scheduling surgery. He also mentioned that the doctor we were seeing wasn't worried about whether baby N would die in two years.

It ended in an apology and the doctor's face probably dropping as he will not be able to send the bill to medicaid for the expensive procedures he will be requiring. He also mentioned that he would not work on him after another doctor started.

I'm sure he'll call OCS and bitch, but they will and always have backed us up!

You snooze, you loose!

I need my baby's mouth fixed and I don' t have to time to screw around with them anymore.

    Good for you all telling the doctor how crappy his staff treated you and how his "only if he won't die" opinion stinks!!!

    Many prayers all goes well with Baby N's surgery tomorrow. Will be thinking of you...

    It is about time the staff is accountable for the way they go about their business. It is so irriatating! I am thankful that Baby N will begin his journey to having his mouth fixed and being able to eat like other babies- tomorrow!! not in 3 months! You Go Girl!

    That is SO awesome! As a CPS worker I LOVE it when the foster parents take initiative for my kids to get them what they need, when they need it, however it takes. And even better you gave the Dr 'what for'.
    You just never know what direction life will take you, especially a child's, right? Some kids are labeled way too early and the focus becomes the bad news instead of what can be done now.
    GO YOU!!!!!
    Good luck to your family and baby N.
