Well I didn't end up with Austin today, so that's a start. I woke up this morning and temped, and really thought it was going to be below the coverline. I jumped online to record it, and it's ABOVE the coverline. I don't know WHY, but I feel hopeful. I know I really shouldn't though. Still don't have a test in the house though.......

I called to get an appointment for Evan's 18 month well baby visit. Not sure if you all remember the crap we have been through trying to find him a Dr. up here. Quick recap: We moved up here, tried to find him a Dr. and Tricare told us he was not in the system. So we went to the Naval hospital to set things up in person. A month later, I got a Tricare card for me, but not one for Evan. We called them, and he still wasn't in the system. So still no Dr. Then THEY called us, and told us they had the error fixed, and assigned a pediatrician. We called that pediatrician, and they were not accepting anymore Tricare patients. So we called Tricare back, and they assigned a different Dr. We made an appointment with this person, but I was immediately uncomfortable because I couldn't find ANY info on this place. Couldn't even find this Dr.'s name in the phonebook. But I kept the appointment. I took Evan for his 16 month well baby, and it was a nightmare. The place was just not a place I will ever take him again. So I posted on FF to see if there were any mothers in my area that had a pediatrician they were happy with. I kept getting 2 names. They were in the same practice. So I called Tricare to change. They changed things with no problems at all. So when I tried to call today to set up his next appointment (which should be in Sept.) they told me they don't TAKE Tricare. So now Evan still does not have a Dr. I am just so sick of this. I am at the point where I don't know what the hell to do. i don't know anyone here with kids, and the people we do know with kids all take them to the Naval hospital. We live too far away from there, so they won't assign us to the hospital. (and no one really likes the hospital's care either). I really never knew how good we had it with his old Dr.

He's upstairs taking a nap in his crib again for day 4. I think I know why he was such a brat yesterday. He has another tooth. Finally up to tooth number 10. I think once he gets up we will go somewhere just to get out of the house. It's not too terribly hot outside, but it rained all day yesterday, so the parks will be all wet. Maybe we will go to one of the parks with a nice walking trail and take a walk with him in the stroller. Or maybe the mall. Or Walgreens.

Yay, still above the coverline!! Awesome. And I am sorry that you've had so much trouble finding a doctor. Insurance just sucks...
