We are leaving in the morning to take our daughter up to Indiana Universty Medical center to see a neurosurgeon. Robin has been disabled since birth and at 12 she had to have 2 head surgeries because of draining spinal fluid through her nose. After 32 years they are concerned that it may be happening again. So please keep her in your thoughts and if you pray say one for her. We need all the good wishes we can get. charlotte aka winddancer41

I post prayer requests in strange places - and yours is on a post-it flag with y our names on it and it's pasted to my Kleenex box right in front of me. Whenever I see your names, I'll send up a quick prayer for both of you and for the wisdom of the doctors as they make their diagnosis.

Well as you can tell we are back home for a little while. After a 411 mile round trip and one night in a $150.00 motel we seen the Doctor this morning and she was a neurogolist instead of a neurosurgeon which was supposed to be who we seen, this Doctor said that Robin needs a surgeon so needless to say as soon as they can get us an appoitment we will be going back. Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts, and every once in a while keep us there for the future, will keep you updated as we find out. charlotte

does that mean you get to pay TWO doctors as well as the costs for the trip????
And how much is the cost of the prolonged anxiety of not knowing????
I will keep you in my thoughts Charlotte

I actually think this Doctor was very sorry about the screw up and told us there be will no charge for the visit with her, but you would think after almost 45 years of going through all we have been through with Robin you would get use to it, but beleive me you don't. I told my husband that i felt like i could start screaming but if i did i don't think i could have stopped. And that would only get me sent to the funny farm. So you just kind of take it in stride and try to go on for her sake.

So sorry you had to hit a brick wall instead of learning the answers you hoped you would get. The emotional upheaval must be so draining on your strength. Hang in there .. your request stays before me until you learn an answer. I hope the appointment with the correct doctor will come quickly.

My heart bleeds for you. How about sending me a message with your address... I would like to make a small donation for at least a few gallons of gasoline.

You are in my prayers.

Rita that was a lovely thought but we are doing all right as far as money is concerned. Thank goodness we have good insurance and medicare, also my husband is retired and was a coal miner with a good pension and we all receive social security. If you would like to do something make a donation to Special olympics in your area as Robin bowls and I coached special olympic athletes for 25 years. Just keep us in your thoughts and prayers

Special Olympics is exactly that; Special. everyone should attend an event at least once. you'll never be the same.
