There’s Always a Rainbow After the Storm

8 Jan

It’s quite interesting how things can change over the course of a day. After a visit to our family doctor and a few phone calls to a pediatrician at Sick Kids, we managed to get our little ladybug referred to the metabolic team at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. The appointment will most likely be within the next couple weeks.

We’re so lucky to have a family doctor who is as committed to getting things done as we are, I had only been speaking to her for a couple of minutes before she had her receptionist call for the referral. It definitely pays to be a pushy mom.  Actually, I’m not really fond of the word pushy, it’s more like dedicated to get our ladybug the care she deserves and determined to see that it happens.

Looking back at how frustrating Thursday was, I’m so happy that things have worked out the way they have.

We now have the opportunity to meet a pediatrician who has actually cared for two other children with CDG, we’re able to see a metabolic specialist at Sick Kids in Toronto within the next month, and…….. I just recently found out that Little Ladybug Hugs was mentioned in the winter issue of Exceptional Family – Canada’s Resource Magazine for Parents with Exceptional Children. I’ll have to post a copy next week.  I can’t describe how exciting this is. 



Most definitely one of the many rainbows we’ll come across after storms we have encountered.

      Hi Janine, I’m glad you like the blog. It’s a great way to share ladybugs story with everyone and I’ve found it to be very therapeutic. I’ve got your email now so will send you a message this weekend and catch up. I can’t believe it’s been a year since the Baby Boom hit Flamborough!
