We had our second spina bifida clinic this week. I can’t believe it’s been so long since we first went to Bloorview Kids Rehab (now Holland-Bloorview), but it was only 4 months ago. It feels like we live there sometimes. I could drive there with my eyes closed! But everyone there is so focused. So great with everything. We go to Bloorview for physiotherapy weekly, and then once a month they have a mom and baby/child support group, and then our clinic visits. So we can see everyone at the same time. We only need to go downtown to Sick Kids for neurosurgery appointments and tests that can’t be done at Bloorview.
Our appointment started at 3pm, so I knew it would be a long afternoon – we got out at 7pm. We saw the developmental paediatrician – Dr Church, had a renal ultrasound – all good, and we saw urology. The urologists that we see rotate, so the one we saw in January at Sick Kids are part of the same rotation that we see at Bloorview, but so far we have seen at least 3 different doctors.
