The Waiting Place
This is one of my least favorite places to be.
Waiting for records to be mailed.
Waiting for the phone to ring.
Waiting for decisions to be made.
I send the consent form to the GI doctor on Saturday, so they should be receiving the form in the mail today (if they haven't received it already). Hopefully they'll fax Nolan's records to the surgeon quickly - I want to know what the GI team at Golisano Children's thinks, and what we need to do next.
I don't like the aimless feeling of not knowing what is going to happen next: I cope better when we have a solid plan in place.
In the meantime, Nolan is doing great. He's eating like a champ - on "off" days, he eats mostly yogurt and grapes, but he makes up for it on good days. His nose is filling up with the yellow-green stuff again, but he isn't too congested. He has had a few dizzy spells over the past few days, and I'm not quite sure what to make of those. My best guess is something vestibular, but who knows? He claims the earth is spinning and falls down or staggers a bit. I'm keeping an eye on those - he seems fine otherwise, so hopefully the "spinny" will just disappear and we won't have to worry about it anymore.
Now I'm off to eat some chocolate bars, because chocolate is a very healthy way of dealing with stress.
