It is nice when as a parent of a special needs child, we are able to take our children to see one of their Doctors when the child isn't sick. To have a special visit. A visit in which you are able to thank the Doctor for all s/he has done for your child and the entire family. A visit in which you let the Doctor know that he isn't just a major team player in the care of your child, but a true family friend.
It is nice to be able to walk into the clinic, tell the receptionist that the Doctor is expecting you. And No we don't have an appointment. To be called back to see the Doctor after just a few minutes. To see the glares from the parents of children who are tired, hungry, anxious, being unruley, who have been waiting to see the Doctor for what seems like hours. The glares don't bother you, because for once our child is seeing the Doctor and s/he isn't sick. The glares don't bother you, because your heart is filled with joy, love, pride, thanks, so many emotions to even put into words.
We had one of those visits today.
We took Timmy to see his Endocrinologist. Timmy had a special Christmas/Thank You gift to give to Dr. Ali. Dr. Ali is and has been Timmy's/our #1 team player, in Timmy's care, for the past 7 years. Without Dr. Ali's professionalism, care, dedication, knowledge, understanding, and his ability to trust and believe in us as Timmy's parents, Timmy wouldn't be as healthy as he is today.
Thank You Dr. Ali for all you have done and all that you do to help keep Timmy healthy.
