Can I just say...

God is SO GOOD! We have been blessed with an AMAZING endocrinologist in Kansas City. I called yesterday with a new concern about Claire. As you know, all of the tests so far have come back normal (which is wonderful!) but that hasn't changed her symptoms. When I called yesterday Dr. Spade was so understanding and kind. She got us an appointment on Tuesday and I think we are VERY VERY VERY close to an answer. I don't want to say much because it is a sensitive subject and kind of private. Why then would I post it on here for the world to read? I just want to stress the importance of being an advocate for your family when it comes to health care. I will not give up. I have "fired" one endo doc and one pediatrician because they weren't listening. (okay, I didn't fire the peds doc we changed insurance, but it sounded cool.) You have to listen to your heart and your gut. We have so many friends with young children and I just encourage them to educate themselves and speak up if they think something is wrong. The previous docs were saying that "she's only 2 and that is really young.....blah...blah...blah." I guess they don't know the Georges. We don't do anything in a small or normal manner. I will post more after Tuesday. I am so hopeful!!
