Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

Ok, so I am the least patient person I know. Yesterday I called Boston Children's and was told, "The Dr. PROMISED me he'd have the appointment dates on my desk TONIGHT before he leaves for a national conference. I'll be able to call you tonight or tomorrow morning with your appointment date."

Then, early this morning, I had a dream that our appointment is next week on Thursday. I woke with adrenaline-induced shakes, then realized I'd been dreaming. (I hate that!)

But I never got a call last night. And now it's today, and it's no longer morning in Boston. So, I called! And they're CLOSED today because of the holiday. Why didn't the secretary tell me that yesterday (my kid is in school, why isn't the clinic open???) So, I wonder if I'll EVER get called?

oooh - I hate that! Just reinforces my belief that all pc helpline personel say, " restart your computer" and all nurses say, " the dr promised...I will call you back first thing in the morning" no matter what the issue is.

You can only really depend on the Great Pumpkin, ya know?
