Still Here…

Been a very slow weekend around here. The docs don’t really come around and not much is done on weekends. Kind of hard to believe considering the size of this hospital and what goes on here. Aunt K and Tina came down yesterday to spend the night with A and I. It is nice to have people around and not be sitting here alone and bored out of my mind!

I had a doctor come in last night to talk to me around 10pm. She had asked if I had any questions. Well of course. I have lots of questions. So I wanted to know the plan and I wanted to know about his ph probe that he had done. Her response “please don’t ask me the hard questions.” Pardon? Hard questions? That is why we are here. You are a doctor. That is your job. I just kind of chuckled to myself and told her I didn’t have any other questions.

I had a wonderful doctor just come in to speak to me. His first words were “I am coming to talk to you about what is going on and I know that you are not happy with us.” Hmmmm wonder where he got that from? Anyways he was great and totally understands why I am frustrated. He too agrees that we need to start at the beginning again with A and rule things out one by one. Of course this isn’t going to be easy considering all the docs agree that there is more than one thing going on. He told me that he would be speaking to the team tomorrow and getting the doctor who admitted us back in the picture. Perfect. I know that there is NO WAY that this chest doctor would let us go home.

So I guess that is it for now. Should know more tomorrow. Thanks for all the support!

    I am so sorry that you are having to fight so hard for your little man. Doesn’t it seem like they should be fighting for HIM and supporting YOU? What do they think is going through your head everytime you have to watch Ashton struggle? They are the docs so it stands to reason that they may not be afraid for him but shouldn’t they want to understand and remedy what is wrong? I just can’t believe how many docs are unsupportive to what seems to be an obvious medical situation! Sorry, can you tell that this has me riled up a bit? Well, know that we are thinking of you and praying for your whole family. If not a fix I hope that they can give you a plan and an explanation. Hang in there, you are doing what you know is best.

    Fight, fight for some answers. Someway they have got give you some. It just isn’t normal what is going on with Ashton health wise. Plus, it is to much for you deal with him being at home and going down into the 40’s. Everytime a dr comes into that room. Play the video. Tell them that is what needs addressed. Shannon I am praying that you guys get some answers and treatment. just because they are unsure isn’t fair to you guys. If they can’t figure out then they need to send you somewhere where they can. They can do that. Keep us updated.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed that things turn around and this guy does what he say’s he’s going to do. Unlike the others.

    Shannon,I’m so glad you didn’t go home. They have got to get to the bottom of Ashton’s problems. I can’t imagine (as a nurse) seeing a baby turn blue and sat in the 60’s and not panic and insist that someone fix it!There is an answer, I just hope they help you find it soon.Thinking about you guys!-Patty
