Update 3/10/16: I now have an appointment for March 22!
Complex. There's that word again, uttered by a medical specialist's scheduler.
Four days ago I received a phone call from the geneticist's scheduler. They found something. They want me to come in. They want to photograph Jie Jie then have her leave the room while they tell me all about it. Usually, they like the child to stay in the room and participate in what's going on. They couldn't get me in until late APRIL! I mentioned we have other testing going on that this could affect so they moved the date to April 11. FIVE WEEKS away!
I asked for a phone consultation. Sorry, it's too complex to handle on the phone.
I said I'll read about it first in her medical record. Sorry, they aren't putting it in her record until after they consult with me.
Do they truly think it's okay to do this to people? To mothers?
Meanwhile, Sissy's been having serious behavioral issues. Things escalated shortly after her 17th birthday last November and reached a critical point the week before Christmas. It can't be explained without being very specific and there is an issue of her privacy. More evaluations are being done later this month. It's devastating. Her situation is also being described as complex by many specialists. I'm extremely angry at the people in China who hid/lied about her condition. I'm not alone in this. Other moms with children from the same orphanage have similar situations. Now we are figuring out how to move forward in a positive way.
