Brayden's contact list

I am sitting down this afternoon to work on scheduling things for the fall. First I am pulling my list of all of Brayden's doctors and figure out when we need to see them.

Brayden's list:

Primary ones, meaning ones we see way too much
  • Pediatrician (the file is Brayden's from the ped's office...obnoxiously huge)
  • Neurologist
  • Gastroenterologist
  • Nutritionist for Ketogenic Clinic
  • Neurologist for Keto
  • Now adding Nephrologist
  • See the people at the lab, for blood and urine work ups, way to often

Additional (meaning ones we see every 3-6 months)

  • Orthopedist
  • Orthotist
  • Opthamologist
  • Neurogeneticist
  • Radiologist (changes out the G-J tube)

Others (now, only when needed)
  • Cardiologist
  • Endocrinologist
  • Pulminologist (for the sleep study and monitoring, at least is what I have been told)

I cannot forget to mention the Pharmacist, he is a great one. We see him, on average, every other week. Brayden meds are always being adjusted.

My favorite things is when Brayden is at a new place and they ask for medical history and doctors.

I hear ya! Although, Gavin's visits to all of his doctors are beginning to slow down some.....and this makes me a very happy Momma!

I got so tired of giving Gavin's history of all of his doctors, what he eats and how much, and all of his meds and their I finally wrote them on a piece of paper and carried it with me everywhere we go....when they start to ask, I just hand them the paper!
