Frustration...

I am just so mad and frustrated. 9 days ago it was identified by our local hospital radiologist that took an xray of Gabe that his shunt was kinked. That means his shunt in non-functioning. Frim has yet to look at our films and according to his out of office message he is gone 7/3-7/17. I am SO angry. SO frustrated. We keep Gabe out of the ER as long as is possible. I do not like to be in the hospital any longer than necessary and now I have to try to get through the next 2.5 weeks until Frim gets back.

Frim has had our xrays since Thursday June 26th. It is frustrating to know that he could not look at the films and get back to us. He KNOWS that there could be a problem with Gabe's shunt. *SIGH* I am so angry!

I think I might need to look for a new neurosurgeon...*SIGH*

I agree, maybe it is time to look for another neurosurgeon...

I am so sorry, Michelle.
I do have to say, regardless of you being frustrated with Frim, maybe looking for a new neuro isn't such a bad idea...and not just because of this incident.
Gabe hasn't had the easiest year (or Life), maybe a new neuro can look at his case history with a new set of eyes? Sometimes someone else can see what even greatest subject matter expert might not.
Just a thought...

Never hurts to "shop around"--- and from the sounds of your entry it appears that it is about time to indeed shop round and see what other choices you have.
GOOD LUCK
you're always in our prayers.
