Well..........today it happened. I am firing Aidan's endo. As some of you know I have not been happy there for some time but today was the straw that broke the camel's back.
We have been trying to get the script signed for Aidan to get a CGMS. We knew that we were going to meet some resistance but didn't expect the answer we got. We have been trying to get our answer for 2 weeks and today we got it. The nurse called and told DH, I can't believe that I actually have to write this, that
"The only way Dr. ____ will sign that script is if Aidan is pregnant"
Can you believe it? Of course my DH FLIPPED out, I mean he is a type 1 d himself so....when he called and told me I couldn't believe my ears I made him repeat it to me like 10 times. Apparently the Dr. thinks that is the only time a CGMS is useful, the nurse said. Well since Aidan is a 8 year old BOY I guess that is never going to happen....the pregnancy nor the CGMS.
Anyway I already called the new endo....explained everything to them, advised them that Aidan see Gary Scheiner to manage BG, they were like great, we love Gary and work with him all the time! I asked for the 1st available appointment and they said of course, Monday, April 21st @ 3pm.
My jaw just about hit the floor. I called in Feb for Aidan's next appt. at his current endo (he was due to go in May) the earliest they could give me was July 29th????????? He has been their patient for 7 years?
Today was just the absolute final blow. It is time to get out and do what is best for Aidan, and stop trying to nurse along a relationship with current endo after that kind of treatment.
DH just informed me that he didn't tell them that we were leaving but that he wanted to speak with our endo directly to discuss the matter further. So when he calls DH back on Monday...........DH is giving him his pink slip.....no severence....no unemployment......just his walking papers!!!!
