I know it's not Monday but I have to bitch somewhere! One of DS's teachers at daycare has poked holes in 2 bottle nipples. I explained the importance of pace feeding to keep him from gulping his bottle down. Apparently someone didn't get the message! I'm pretty sure it's his afternoon teacher as it's only one bottle and his morning teacher is there for two feedings. DH is upset because we have to buy new nipples. They don't cost much but he doesn't like that someones actions are forcing us to do so.I called the school today when we got home, after discovering the hole today, and was told they would address it tomorrow when both teachers are present.
I haven't been on here much lately for a good reason - things have been going really smoothly and I feel like I'm in a happy little routine and mostly over my PPD and PPA, BUT, fun story, I had something happen today that majorly triggered my anxiety. We had a pediatrician other than ours check out LO in the hospital when she was born because our pediatrician didn't service that hospital. No big deal, it's fine, they send the records over to our pediatrician. Well it's taken forever and a day to get the records. We were told they would automatically send them to our doctor, but then that turned out not to be true. They told my husband they wouldn't send them to our pediatrician's office, they had to release them to us, then we had to deliver them there. Fine. They mailed them, we finally got them today. I would have assumed that if there was anything wrong or flagged in the testing they would have let us know. Apparently not! So, there are a bunch of amino acids that they test newborns for and one was flagged as high. I looked up what could cause it and it's a kidney/urine issue that is FATAL if untreated. Luckily, she doesn't have it (because if she did, she'd be um, DEAD, because the longest any infant has gone without having it untreated was 17 days!) I, of course, found this out after their office and our pediatrician's office is closed, so I am just beside myself with anger and anxiety.It's a really, really, really rare thing to actually have this kidney/urine thing. Like, 1 in 57,000 rare. So it's highly unlikely she would have had it in the first place and it was probably just an fluke or too small of a sample (which can happen) but since it's so deadly, everything I found online says you want to find out immediately if this amino acid is elevated so they can immediately do further testing to make sure it isn't that rare issue. The site also said I should have been notified by the pediatrician and the state, and I wasn't contacted by anybody. There could be a perfectly fine reason as to why no one was concerned, like other markers indicating it wasn't anything to worry about, but I need a doctor or at least a receptionist to go over that with me, instead of just mailing paperwork like it's no big deal and offering no explanation for the abnormal test.Also, they spelled my husband's name wrong on the form. Twice. His name is Keith. It is really not that hard. Anyway, I am trying to relax, will speak with our pediatrician in the morning. *deep breath*
