    You should see if your pediatrician would be willing to call the stupid “specialist” and give him a earful!!!! Seriously RIDICULOUS!!!!

    I can only agree.
    We see a lot of special needs patients in the peds clinic, and if any one of them was as hard headed as that idiot, our Dept head would drop the hammer in a second.
    Pure nonsense.

    I’m sure you’re frustrated. I suspect the GI Clinic has “cover your butt syndrome” and they are sticking to the charts and textbook recommendations to avoid liability for Namine not gaining weight.

    The funny thing is, the doctor insisted that he wasn’t charting Namine according to the average child, but that she was her own chart (whatever that means). Then in the very next breath, he went on to say how we should be able to predict a good weight gain by doing a head-to-rump measurement. Except, hello, caudal regression! Can’t do that, dipwad. Sigh.

    Do you think he’s comparing with her own previous measuements?

    Maybe. I mean, he had Namine’s growth chart up, and he was complaining that it was “all over the place.” The reason for that is because Namine’s length depends on who measures her. Sometimes the nurses will stretch out her longer leg (the left one, the one that doesn’t hook in as much) and thereby piss her off, and sometimes they won’t. So it’s not that her actual length goes up and down, it’s just the recorded length that varies.

    I got a migraine after that visit. That doctor was SO condescending to all of us. And why it would take 3 HOURS for them to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING I have no idea. very frustrating indeed.
