I received a call from the receptionist at the new doctor's office this morning. I have to admit, this Mommy probably overreacted a bit and got a little too worried after the initial phone call. Trust me, it wasn't my first time overreacting and I am sure it won't be my last. After I stopped to think about my initial conversation, I had spoken with the receptionist who might not have any medical background so of course, she would need to verify with the doctors before giving me any type of answer especially since Isabelle will not be one of their "typical" patients.
I was told the doctor has no issues with accepting Isabelle as a patient but did have some concerns with me delivering in SanDestin. Since he hasn't been involved in my care up to this point, his concerns were the same as mine have been. What if they have to transport Isabelle to Pensacola due to complications? The hospital in SanDestin is not set up for babies that might have complications. I explained a little of my pregnancy background and all of the doctor's that I am seeing including Isabelle's Pediatric Cardiologist who will be on the phone with the techs when she is born. I am sure that all of Isabelle's records will be sent to him for further review after she is born.
Now that everything is settled and I have stopped overreacting, I feel good about our change in doctors. Although, we will miss our other doctor and nurse so much, I am hoping that this change will make things a little easier on us for appointments. If I had not heard such great things about this doctor, I would never have made the switch. I would be willing driving where ever necessary to make sure all of my babies get great care.
