12-hr hospital trip and answers
On November 13, 2018 we had 3 appointments out at BC Children’s Hospital for Maddison. We were doing the 2-hour drive in on a beautiful sunny day from Chilliwack to Vancouver, BC. There was a lot of anticipation for the appointments ahead, and apparently a lot of nerves as well. A Day at the Hospital.
Part of parenting a child who is medically complex (and has been a medical mystery for her entire life) means there’s always a lot of anxiety around the idea of a diagnosis. We’ve always wondered if and when we would find out the cause of Maddison’s symptoms, or if she would continue remain a mystery.
There is far more going on in Maddison’s brain than what we can see, and what we can even test for.
