50 Bucks

by Chris


So, here is my current rant...

...imagine if you will this scenario, I am on Main Street Concord. I have 2 $50 bills in hand and walk up to a random person...

Me (to stranger): Hi, I will give you $50 if you look at my daughter and tell me what is wrong with her vision.
Stranger: I don't know what's wrong with her...
(I hand him/her a $50 bill)
Me: You know as much as the doctors we have seen!!

Yeah, I am frustrated and this is partly why I have started to look towards Abby on the social and education side. For instance, this week, she has cried after school saying she can't cry in school and needed to let the tears out.

Sure, I want to know what's wrong, but the genetic test will be in soon to confirm one way or the other if she has LHON, I think I need to focus on Abby's well being and less on the disease...

Yeah, that's very frustrating when you go to specialists and they don't refer you, don't know or tell you something wrong. My husband went to general practitioner and had to pay the co-pay when everyone and two nurses knew he had an ear infection. The doctor didn't see anything till the nurse pointed it out, and then didn't give any drops. His ear continued to hurt, we ended up going to a specialist, and yes--he needed ear drops. His ears are getting better but ended up costing us 75 dollars, when it should have only been 25.

I would use the internet. Doctors get reviews and ratings and you can look in your area. You know, you are even close enough to Boston and NYC, if need be.

Although I believe in prayer and positive thoughts, I also believe that if I didn't have the right doctors, I would not be here.
