My Daughter’s Second Cochlear Implant Surgery

Today is the day that my daughter gets her second cochlear implant.  I have to admit even though I have already been through this same surgery 12 years ago with my daughter, I was still nervous going into the hospital and waiting for her to have her surgery done.  My daughter was born with a severe to profound hearing loss in both ears.  In 2001, she received her first cochlear implant only on her right side and at that time doctors typically implanted only one side.  Cochlear implants…

When Induction Becomes Necessary – 3 Popular Ways To Induce Labor

A pregnant mom often begins to feel as if she is going to be pregnant forever during those final weeks of pregnancy.  Most moms are miserable, are unable to get comfortable, and sleeping is often difficult due to being uncomfortable.  In fact, the closer you get to your due date the more anxious and nervous…

Questions To Ask At Every Doctor's Visit

I am a mom with five kids and for better or worse plenty of experience at the doctor's office. I've dealt with everything from ear infections to misdiagnoses of severe hearing loss to multiple allergies. Wanting to connect to and inspire other moms I wrote Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey. Now I speak to groups about trusting our gut, advocating for our children and being open to all…

Another trip to the ER goes badly…Thank God for DAN Doctors

Monday, was such a long day. We did our normal, all day therapy. We visited some friends, when Gabe said his stomach hurt. I asked if he had to go “Caca.” Of course he said No, and I proceeded to make him to at least sit on the toilet. I get him to go, he comes out saying he feels better, and goes back to playing. About 30mins later. He come out and says. “Mommy, I don’t feel soo good, my tummy hurts.” I look at him, and all color has gone from his face.

We left quickly. I was…

that light at the end of the tunnel...it may be just a train

My GP said this to me this morning and it's not yet certain whether she is extremely insightful or some type of witch doctor that cursed me because the rest of the day so far has confirmed that the light everyone refers to at the end of the proverbial tunnel is in fact a train about to run us down.…

Do You Do Your Own Medical Research Or Do You Leave It To Your Doc?

I do my own research and I think it's high time that doctors get used to us doing this. 



Doctors need to adjust to a reality that patients are actively engaging in their own care and should be treated as partners in their care. This means that at times the doctor may disagree with a patient's diagnoses and prognosis. Well as partners do, then the…

Are You a Lazy Reader?

I Am.  I say short books rule.  I've never understood people who pick up a 700 page book with gusto.  What are they thinking?  That's hours of time with eyes glued on print.   I get it, the story can be amazing and transfer you to an incredible place.  I just don't think that I have the stamina to go there.  Do me a favor and turn that book into 5 different books and I'll bet more people would gladly pick it up. 

 

I've recently discovered…

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CURE FOR ALLERGIES?

I'm so excited.  My son is allergic to so many things and we've been through the wringer with him but he's doing so well.  So, I wrote Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey to share what we did that helped him so that other families can be helped also.  I never imagined that writing the book would lead to radio interviews and interacting with so many wonderful people with such a wealth of knowledge.  Here is a…

Would you sue a doctor you like, if he made a mistake?

Okay, so I encourage the importance of a partnership between doctors and patients.  I figure if we can talk to our doctors, he'll know better what's going on with us and we'll better understand what he wants from us.  We'll also be able to work together if we have all kinds of other ideas we're thinking of trying that he may not suggest- like using olive oil for that dry scalp instead of a medicated shampoo.

 

But could this closeness hurt the doctor?  Go with me for a second.…

Do you have a headache?

If you have a headache, you can take two pills and call it a day- you'll probably have to take two more in a few hours. If you have a headache and figure out why- you may not get the headache again.

 

That's called integrative healing.  Drugs alone typically mask what's going on.  Figuring out why something happens, gives you a chance to truly heal.  Go down the list.  Here's a sample: 

 

(1) Is it nutritional?  Did you eat today?  Are you dehydrated? Are you…

What's Your Favorite Question to Ask Your Doctor?

It's about the questions, as I share in Little Patient Big Doctor.  If you want to stand up for yourself, if you want to give voice to your doubts, you have to ask a question.  It starts and ends with questions.  The answers to our questions open doors for us to that which we need.  That's why the question is brewing within. 

 

So, what's your favorite question when you walk into a doctor's office?  Some…

Can you partner with your doctor? (Get your minds out of the gutter gals)

So, I just wrote a book, Little Patient Big Doctor: One Mother's Journey.  I open the book with a letter to doctors to partner with their patients in their care.  Look, we all do it. . . we seek out "alternative remedies".  Wouldn't it be nice if our doctors would actually listen to us and work with us as we tried out all this… Continue

Sick Kids

My poor baby girl.....



Her and I are both sick right now. And we are miserable. I started with an ear infection which led to a sinus infection which led to bronchitis which is now back at another infection of some sorts....along with bruised ribs/sternum from coughing so hard. This has been going on since Feb.8th! I think this month alone with Dr's visits, co-pays and Rx's I have probably paid about $500 bucks out of pocket!… Continue

When the Certified Letter Comes I'm Going to Stamp Deceased on it and Return It

I did something stupid for which I am positive there are going to be repercussions. I knew I shouldn’t while I was in the middle of dialing. My heart was racing and that’s usually when I know. Wait. Don’t act now. I’m very familiar with this warning signal, and yet this time I couldn’t stop myself.



Dear Self, please try not to tell off people at doctors’ offices. It never ends well. Especially don’t tell someone off on their voicemail. Look what happened to Tiger Woods when he left a… Continue
