As many of you know, we are on a never ending waiting list for a Neuro Psych eval. I say never ending because each time I call Sutter to follow up on where we are on the waiting list, we seem to be pushed back a few months. Now, they tell us it'll be September. Nice huh?
Enter the special needs playgroup~a group of moms with children with various needs that come together during the week so the kids can have some social interaction time and the moms can talk to someone other than Elmo. In Elmo's defense, he is obviously a great talker but sometimes there's only so much you can take if you are over the age of 5! Anyway, one of the moms recommended another doctor who not only would do the Neuro Psych eval she would also file all the paperwork with our insurance company. I wouldn't have to go see the moron pediatrician for a referral! SCORE! I called her and it seems she can see Emmie in JULY!!! The doctor sent me the intake forms and it took me nearly three hours to complete! But, the "Book of Emmie" is now in the mail to her and we are all ready for a July eval. I seriously can not tell you how excited we are!
Lately, Emmie has been having some real off days. A few days ago we went to the library to pick out some summer reading books and the kids picked up movies. Emmie loves watching movies! She came home and watched her movie in her room. Later that night at bedtime, she was watching the same movie, this time with subtitles. I thought maybe she turned them on and didn't know how to turn them off. So, I asked her. Nope, she said she couldn't hear what the movie was saying if they mumbled or moved a lot. I asked if she could read what the words said and of course, not really. Now, anytime she watches a movie she watches with subtitles. This is a new development and although she has had several normal hearing screenings, we will be making her an appointment for another one just to be sure. I'm hopeful this Neuro Psych eval will shed some light on what in the world is going on!!!
Anyway, we are going on vacation soon! YAY! New post on traveling soon :)
