We had an appointment to take Lexi to the doctor for a consult about having her tonsils taken out. They are always swollen and it looks so painful! She doesn't complain, but we think since she has lived with it forever, she doesn't know the difference. She also snores loud at night and talks nasally all the time. I got up and took the kids to school today and told Lexi I would pick her up later for her appointment and then take her back to school for her Valentine's Day party. So, Joe and I picked her up and Joe got turned around going to the doctor! We were supposed to be 10 minutes early, but we got there just in time. We did the sign in stuff and waited...for 40 minutes. We finally told them we had to leave at 12 pm and they said we can't rush the doctor and we might have to reschedule. Of course Joe was furious! They said if it makes you feel any better, the doctor has to leave at 12 also. He got called into an emergency surgery. So, we asked does that mean Lexi will be seen by 12? They said we can't guarantee that. We just walked out and a few hours were wasted. Lexi was upset and asked why didn't the doctor want to see her? We try to prepare her for things and she does great. We took her back to school and it was lunch time and she got to have a cupcake. She was really worried about missing the cupcakes! Later today, Joe called me from work and said we are not going back to that office. I guess they have a reputation for being late all the time. I guess we will have to find another doctor or forget about it. I try not to be superstitious, but I really don't like Friday the 13th. It never seems to go well.
