Noah's first office visit with Lynne
Today, David and I took Noah for his appointment with his rehab doctor. There was no "real" reason for our visit, but these are required to update prescriptions and the like. It was a cold rainy day here, and Noah had goosebumps on his arms. He got weighed(gained 2lbs...157) and is scheduled to have a botox treatment at the end of May to help loosen the tightness of his arms and hands. We bit the bullet and asked to get a permit for closer parking for Noah...on days like today, even though we temporarily parked our car in a disabled spot, I had to move our car during the appointment. We learned some VERY sad news today, though. Noah's rehab doctor, Dr. Thorogood, will be moving out of state in the next number of months. We saw her assistant, Lynne, today, and she told us of the doctor's departure. Dr. Thorogood has held a very special place in my heart, especially, from the beginning of Noah's injury. She listened to me, questioned what I questioned, changed things that I wanted changed and couldn't get changed with any other doctor and aligned with our hope for Noah...the thought of seeing another doctor would never occur to me. She will administer Noah's botox in May, but that will be the last time we see her. We love her assistant, but she is not a full fledged doctor, so we would have appointments with her, but also be required to have some appointments with the rehab doctor. Please pray that there will be a great doctor to come and take her place...we were told there is no one at this point...our God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, more than we could ask, think, or hope for...we shall see.
