thankful thursday : oh boy...

I had my first Doctor appointment at our new location on Tuesday.  I was there for 4 hours.  No joke.  

1:30pm : arrive to start filling out paperwork

2:00pm : called back for ultrasound

2:40pm : sent back to waiting room to wait for Education nurse

2:55pm : go upstairs with nurse.  Find out my old office hadn't sent my records.  Sit through nurse trying to get my records from them.  They had tried faxing them to the normal phone number and received a confirmation (go figure).  Will resend.  Finish giving her some of my history and learning about their practice and the hospital's services.

3:30pm : go back to waiting room.  Find out from education nurse that office sent records.

3:35pm : Education nurse comes back... they didn't include my labs.  Start calling Louisville to get this figured out.

3:45pm : Go back to have finger pricked.  Iron is really low. 

3:55pm : back to the waiting room.

4:15pm : starting to get worried... 

4:45pm : called back to exam room.

5:00pm : Dr. sticks head in to apologize and promise she is coming in very soon.

5:08pm : Nurse knocks on the door and offers us Sprite.

5:12pm : Dr. comes in.  Says everything looks great with the baby, wants to give me a bunch of iron, will see me in 4 weeks.

5:20pm : Find out from receptionist that there had been a few "emergencies" and thats why I had waited so long.  Getting an explanation did calm me down a little bit.  I try to understand... Its going to happen a lot from the other side of the situation for me.  Any other day it wouldn't have mattered... but Kyle's parents were back at home alone waiting on me to start grilling the ribs.  

And my amazing husband was able to stay with me the entire time.  His orientation instructor let him leave to be there for the ultrasound.  So thankful that we have ended up in this city, with this program.  It really seems like they are a great family oriented least by Gen Surg standards.  Not all places would have let the intern leave in the middle of the day to be there for the big ultrasound.  And he wouldn't have been able to witness this:

our stubborn baby that wouldn't move arms and hands out of the way.

Oh and we are both also REALLY thankful to find out that this baby is a
