I’m pretty sure everyone knows this by now, but we’re moving! Brian will be graduating next month (!!!) and has been applying for jobs and interviewing since the beginning of the semester. A couple weeks ago he accepted an offer from a company in Kansas City, so we’ll be moving out there at the beginning of the year. (For those of you who are curious, the company is in Missouri, but we’ll likely live on the Kansas side of the city. It’s close.) Anyway, there’s a lot to do before we move but one thing I’m finding overwhelming is the number of medical type people we’ll have to replace when we get there. When we moved from Texas back to Colorado I had to find an OB and we had to find Kalena a pediatrician. The end. Here’s a list of the doctors (etc) we’ll need when we get to Kansas.
An OB. One who’ll take me at 30 (ish) weeks pregnant and who does VBACs.
A pediatric dentist
A pediatric ophthalmologist
And, of course, a whole new early intervention team for Daniel including:
A case manager
An occupational therapist
A physical therapist
A speech therapist
Now, the reality is I’ll probably only have to find an OB and a pediatrician, we’ll get referrals for the other doctors, and Daniel will be assigned a team of therapists when we get in touch with early intervention there. But YOU GUYS! I love all our people here! I can’t imagine finding a pediatrician as good or that I like as much as the one we have here. Or an OT as good with Daniel as his current one. She’s been his therapist since he was 2 months old! Everybody here is so great! I’m so overwhelmed with the idea of all new caregivers.
So. Who wants to find me some doctors in Kansas City?
