I dutifully took my son to his follow-up bone specialist appointment. He broke his collarbone a month ago and I had to come back to X-ray his clavicle. My appointment was at 10:25am and I didn’t get home until 1:30pm!
I showed up at my appointment time, “checked-in”, waited for them to call my number, which was 2 hours. We had the X-ray done, although my little man screamed the whole time because he was scared of the X-ray machine. We had to wait another hour to see the doctor. When we finally saw someone, they showed me his X-ray results and it looked like it was healing properly. It took about 5 minutes for her to tell me what was happening and that they didn’t need to see him again unless he was complaining about pain.
Before we actually saw the doctor, my lil pterodactyl decides to poop. Lucky for me, there was a washroom nearby, UNLUCKY for me they didn’t have a change table in it. So, I grabbed a chair and took it into the bathroom and tried to maneuver my awkward diaper change chair. The diaper was changed successfully and a lady after me thanked me because she needed to change her baby, too. All in all it worked out for my fellow Momma and me.
Now my beef is that the wait was ridiculous! The huge waiting room was packed full of people, which I suspect they had double booked us all. Keeping my 2 year old entertained with my iPad mini was a challenge because all he wanted to do was walk around.
It wasn’t one of my favourite times in my life, but I’m happy to be finished with those appointments. Whew!
Much love to all! 🙂
