Slightly Frustrating Doctor's Appointment Yesterday

Recommended Posts

We don't have a teaching or childrens' hospital here. Just one hospital with a small and overwhelmed emergency room. As good as the idea is, I don't honestly see much coming from it other than a 6 or 7 hour wait in a crowded waiting room and then 5 minutes with an exhausted doctor who takes one look at our obviously not dying child and tells us to make an appointment with a GP.

I had meningitis last summer. It had been confirmed with a spinal tap and 2 CT scans. I still spent 5 hours writhing in pain on a chair in the hallway before someone could see me.

Good for you, Sara! for taking command of the situation. Doctors are not Gods, do not know everything, and we should not give them the ability to control our lives when it adversely affects us or our loved ones. You are doing the right thing! Make her some pancakes in the cast iron pan. Cook a batch of griddle scones (biscuits) in the same pan. http://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/recipes/spiced-sultana-griddle-scones
