Dayton Moms 2009 - Page 3

post #41 of 298
I have had only a few interactions with Children's. Nathan was hospitalized when he was 3 weeks old for a week and it was excellent then as well. I would pump milk and when I got a full bottle that I was not needing they would freeze it for me, and I think they even provided me bottles at the time to pump it into.

When Nathan was 16 months old he had to have stitches. The Ped who did them in Urgent Care was perfectly fine with waiting to do the stitches until I had nursed him quiet after they had to dig around the area and he was upset.

Then about a year ago Nathan broke his arm. We ended up in the ER, and they got him right in, got an x-ray and everything quickly done (transfer from Urgent Care as we didn't realize it was broken, figured it was a sprained wrist since he was not communicating with us). When they put him under sedation to do the arm (it was a fracture that had to be set), he had a slight accident and the nurse was great with getting him a set of hospital clothes to wear. And when the security guard gave DH problems, the nurse just had him pull around to the ER ambulance entrance to pick us all up. She even made sure we could get out that night without having to spend the night. (It was like 2 am when we finally got discharged, and he was so tired that he wasn't walking and the DR's would have made him spend the night if she wouldn't have helped us get him functioning enough they would let him go home).

Yes, I see a huge trend here....my Nathan is the problem child of the three....

But we also go there every week for Aidan's speech therapy and they are great in that area as well.

I just don't personally care for the Pediatric Ortho group there.

I may need some help, DH is working on the problem, but he doesn't have much of a temper for problems so I doubt if he will be able to fix it.

Our heater broke

If any of you know any HVAC people that won't charge an arm and led to fix it let me know.

DH just ripped the thermostat out of the wall trying to put another one in and he didn't read the instructions and probably screwed it up. Thanks DH.

We have a gas heater, you can hear it click on when it feels like it, but the blower never kicks on. Anyone that knows anything let me know. I'm an Eskimo, but I may just kill my DH if he doesn't slow his roll. He acts like everyone is going to freeze. He actually said "well when the baby is here we have to have heat" that's next winter dear, I think we will find someone to fix it by then.

I don't think the thermostat was the problem even if it is/was the one we bought, of course, doesn't work with our heater. Let me know. Thanks mamas

Kriket we are due close! Have you decided what you're gonna do for classes? I just order the Hynobabies course. Now I'm just looking forward to trying it in action. Hope the heat gets fixed soon. This is not the time to be in the cold!

Glad everyone has such great things to say about Children's. DD is getting surgery next week. It's a quick outpatient procedure, but I'm scared out of my mind.

I second the caution with Dr. Siler, specifically with the vax issue. I feel I should say it again, Caution With Dr. Siler About The Vax Issue!

Dr. Weller demands well baby visits and is not knowledgeable about the care of an intact penis.

Thanks for the honey info.

So I need ped recommendations again.

I can't go to horlacher/woods, because baby is on medicare

HAS to be no-vax no-circ friendly.

I feel like someone mentioned dr. Jona? Jonas? Who took caresource, I just don't know about his vax/circ stance

thanks moms and happy new year! I love the nice new thread!
We use Pri Med Pediatrics in Huber Heights, we see Dr Thomas specifically. He's not exactly no-vax friendly, but he doesn't harass me about it. He did ask me to sign the refusal form, but was fine with me editing it heavily. I mentioned to him when I first met him that we don't circ and started talking about retracting, but he cut in and said "it shouldn't retract yet" so you bet I was happy! I like the practice because they have late hours twice a week, are open Saturday mornings, and are decent about returning phone calls. They do hand out mainstream "informational sheets" that are filled with incorrect information (like solids, bottle feeding, weaning from the breast, sleep, etc) but I always leave them behind. I'm not sure about insurance...we have BCBS and supplemental BCMH (Bureau for Children with Medical Handicaps) for Connor (since he's special needs).

Super Bowl?

Any football fans here? We're Colts fans, and since they're not in the running this year, we've not been watching the play offs. But we're still interested in watching the Super Bowl. Is anyone having a party? Is anyone interested in coming to a party at our place if we threw one? Time to start making plans!

Hi Everyone!

Hi...I've been lurking here mostly. Trying not to be on the computer so much. I live here in Fairborn.

Hi 2boyzmama! This is Holly from the mall where we met. Glad Conner is doing well. I was there last Sunday and I thought of you.
I need a good family doc and a good chiropractor. Anyone have any recs? I am willing to drive 30 minutes away. I posted a new thread before I realized this thread was here.

Calipigeon, my daughter sees doc Seiler. I do delayed vaxing and she is fine with it and even happy to do it. Is there something else I should know? I have lots of good things to say about her...very pro BFing, into nutrition, avoids medication unless really necessary, gives alternative treatment when possible, dislikes petroleum jelly products, she doesn't give unsolicited parenting advice, supportive of baby led weaning.

Question about OH

I posted this in the general forum this morning but it may get more responses here. I don't know how to get it moved, so I'm just copy/pasting.

I posted about moving to Dayton a few months ago but since then my husband and I have separated. He is thinking about getting out of the Air Force but IF he doesn't, he will be at AFIT in July.

I'd like to reconcile, but he is not at all interested. Should I move to OH anyway, so everyone can be close to each other? How friendly is OH to single moms? How about housing/cost of living? In a year or so (when alimony ends) will I be able to get a job that can support me and 3 under 4? What do you think?

TIA ladies!

akichan: I got back to you in your thread!

I would recommend Dr. April Dunnington for chiropractic care. She specializes in women and children. It makes me feel better when she says that we need to go see her when we think we are getting sick long before going to any other Dr. Her office is located just off of I-675 and Wilmington Pike.

Hi Holly! We haven't been to the mall in a while...it's cold/flu season, so rough on Connor. IN fact, he has a double ear infection and RSV right now Poor baby! He's been at Ian's indoor soccer practices, and I think that might have done it. I just never know...sometimes he can be in crowds of kids for weeks at a time and not get sick, other times he gets sick from one short interaction. I guess that's just how immune deficiencies go...his t-cell count fluctuates so much. We had to skip a LLL meeting this week, but hope to make it to a different meeting tomorrow if his fever is still gone.

Hi akichan! I'm sorry you guys are having problems...what stress! To answer your questions...Yes, I think that Dayton is very friendly to single moms, I know several here. I think housing and cost of living are very reasonable, and the job market is as good as it gets anywhere right now (which is to say, not very good, unfortunately!) Do you have a degree or training/certification of any kind? Health care industry is big here, LOTS of hospitals/clinics. Plus you have the military base with LOTS of civilian jobs. THere are several colleges here, one very inexpensive community college that caters to non-traditional students (i.e. night, weekend, and online classes). You could spend the year of alimony working towards a medical certification (EMT, med tech, xray tech, nurses aid, home health care, etc) and then you'll have certain employment. That's just one example, if health care isn't your thing, there are other options in careers and job training.

As for whether you should follow him here...it depends more on how your relationship is right now, I would think. You said he doesn't want to reconcile...but are you being civil to each other? Would he consider staying married until after the PCS in order to save expenses? That way you could also keep Tricare until the birth of the baby (you're due in June, right?)

Where is your family? THat would be something else to consider...maybe move closer to them for help/support?

Of course if you come here, we'll all be glad to meet you! GOod luck in everything, I hope it works out for the best, whatever the best is.

Have you checked with the Health Food Store? Would a nauturopathy person be able to help?

I know a few are on here, but could those who provide homebirth support please contact me.

I think DH and I are looking at TTC'ing, and this time I want to birth at home, with OB back up mostly because of nose in my life in-laws who will create a stink the minute they realize we are purposely birthing at home.
post #56 of 298
My midwife at life stages said that she would shadow care for me. I've lost the contact info for the cinci MW. There are OBs in my MWs office too incase your family is like mine and they get concerned that you don't have a 'real doctor'
post #57 of 298
Thanks Kriket, but I have an OB I am going to use. After my history I want a provider I can trust, and I have built a good relationship with my provider for my last child. I had already had a prior relationship with both OB's in the practice and both were great with my previous experiences with them.

After my fourth pregnancy I have a very hard time trusting medical professionals. There were some issues that came close to lawsuit level. Just for my comfort level, I need to know and trust the providers after that pregnancy and know I can trust the OB's I used last, in case I do end up having to transfer to the hospital.

Kristin we're going completely stir crazy here too. I think I might attempt to clear off the car while DD is sleeping and go to the library or something. I'm tired of being at home!
