House, but unfortunately he only takes cases where the patients are actors.
My daughter suffers from chronic abdominal pain and her pediatrician and I have discussed it. I was planning to take her to a GI doctor but had yet to make the appointment for various reasons (I'm trying to keep this short, and I could write a page on that alone). In the last week, however, it has taken a definite turn for the worse. I was able to make her an appointment with a pediatric GI... on April 27th. Come on. Really??? I am KICKING myself for holding off on making that appointment! At least we might have already been 'on the books' or something when this struck. Our pediatrician told me that basically one of two things will happen: (1) this acute period will resolve and she will go back to 'normal' (normal for her being a person who gets serious stomach aches every day, sometimes 2-3 times a day) and she can go to her 4/27 appointment; or (2) she will get worse and will end up being admitted before 4/27.
Meanwhile, I'm calling the GI department every day to check on cancellations, and I'm calling two other nearby children's hospitals to see if we can get in there any sooner, though the closest one (with the 4/27 appointment) is certainly better if we end up needing to go back and forth for treatment, etc. And I've googled her symptoms a billion times and received a billion results. Go figure. The next step? Channeling Dr. House and his team. Or... maybe if I watch enough episodes there will be one with a character that matches her symptoms... Sigh.
