Tori had a follow up appointment today with her eye surgeon. I don't know if I should laugh or cry......

First I start asking about her NG tube (which wasn't in because she pulled it out earlier today and I figured they would want it out to look at her nose) and the surgeon, who happens to be the man who pioneered the surgery that Tori had, looked at me and said "They should have NEVER put an NG tube in a child who had nasolacrimal reconstruction. I would have never done the surgery if I knew she needed an NG tube" just another example of too many cooks in the kitchen....why the heck didn't someone, ANYONE, know that they should have never replaced her NG tube and why didn't anyone who saw her after surgery mention it, she was seen by ophthalmology almost every day for 2 weeks after surgery and by numerous other doctors.

Second, they want to remove the stints in early March...fine...right....NOPE......since her age will be under 60 weeks gestation, the simple OUTPATIENT surgery is going to be INPATIENT...she is going to have to be READMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL......

At least everything looks fine according to the surgeon and the staff at the office was wonderful about immediately getting us back to an exam room to wait rather than having us wait in the crowded waiting room full of coughing patients! Even though we still had to wait an hour to be seen, at least we weren't being exposed to a host of germs!

BTW, it is kind of weird to hear an entire crowded office say "so this is the little lady we have heard so much about"...apparently Tori and her surgery were the talk of the office, I guess they usually don't see or operate on patients so young!

Like I said, I don't know if I should laugh or cry!
