On Shaky Ground
As we wait to hear from our pediatric nephrologist, I got some upsetting news. My husband’s company is dropping our HMO. This comes as quite a shock and has left us pretty disappointed. I honestly felt like I could throw up when I heard the news. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you may recall that we’ve had a tough time finding the best doctors for our son’s case. We’ve gone through numerous therapists and several psychiatrist to find those that have the best experience and skills. It may not be perfect, but I can honestly say that we finally felt comfortable with our team and trusted the care our son was receiving.
Now we have until the end of the year to find a new team within a new HMO. Considering the critical time with our son’s kidney concerns, this couldn’t have happened at a worst time. Fortunately, our pediatric nephrologist feels comfortable referring us to somebody on the outside and feels confident that he can perform the biopsy before the change, if that’s his final decision. As for our mental health team, I’ve got some work to do.
It’s ironic that once you feel that things are finally on solid ground, there’s another crack in the dirt.
