On Tuesday, our appointment will be 2 hours with just my husband and I. Next month we continue with several hours of testing with my son, then we get the results at the end of May.
Speaking of results, I got a call back from the first Neurologist who we’ve decided to leave mid-assessment and she has asked that we read the report that she’s going to prepare. She said that after talking to family, particularly Grandma, she’s now comfortable diagnosing him with Aspergers. She said that she really liked talking to Grandmothers since they tend to know what’s best for the child. I agree that my son’s Grandmother rocks, she’s pretty spectacular, but I was a little offended that the doctor didn’t value any of the information I brought to the table. Also, any diagnosis that begins with the word “I’m now comfortable”, doesn’t sound very clinical.
Either way, I look forward to starting over again this week with a new team. Maybe I should bring Grandma with us, she does rock you know!
