We've been waiting for this. I just got a call from the MRI department that they *JUST NOW* realized that Milo needs sedation, so they can't do it in the time slot he was supposed to be in. JUST NOW REALIZED. They've had 2 weeks and 2 confirmations!!! We now have to wait until June 24th...seriously. I'm sobbing and soooo angry. Totally unlike me, but I'm so ready to call back and scream at the woman. Maybe go down there and scream at her. Do they not realize what has to be pushed around and cancelled for this? A quick, Sorry, we'll reschedule...NOT sufficient. I'm so angry. I usually take "sorry" quickly and easily, but there's NO EXCUSE for this. I've already paid someone (no one else can do it) to watch Kannon. Paid half, non-refundable. I cancelled a bunch of other stuff today and tomorrow so that he could have this done. He's getting worse, and now we have to wait over a month?
Sorry. I would go on, but I can't see the screen from crying. I'm so angry. Did I mention that? I feel powerless right now.
I'd be ticked off too. I don't know what it is with the MRI people, but Ava's was rescheduled 4 times in less than a week. All for similar reasons as you. Luckily we still got an appt the same week. They had her under a time for sedation, but she had to have GA which takes longer.
I know for a fact that they do have MRI appts they keep open for when they (doctors) need answers fast. I'd call Radiology and ask (assertively) for one of those appts. ((Hugs)) I'm so sorry! If that doesn't work, maybe calling the referring doc (in tears) might speed things along. KUP!
Thank you, tasha_mae, for my siggy!

I am sorry that happened. I mean, trying to get things in order, planning something & waiting for a test & then to be told "sorry, not today"....it's hard. I've had those moments, yelling, demanding, freaking out. Especially as you said, getting confirmations, calls, papers etc. BTDT
I know w/ Cooper, when it came to his MRI, he had to be under GA completely. When he had his CT-Scan, he didn't need GA, but he needed to be sedated, and that was something they worked out that day. GA, if the doctor ordering the MRI didn't ask for it, not realizing that it was a child, that's the doctor's fault "OR" the doctor's assistant, the one drawing up all the paperwork for the scheduling secretary to set up the MRI date/time. Depends on who forgot what. Unfortunately, we end up flipping on the person who is on the phone or in person, who had/has nothing to do w/ making the mistake, but we can't help it. It's hard to be worried, then to have people screw it up, you end up loosing it. I relate 100%
I hope they get things in order for you & the MRI is scheduled in a timely manner.
I totally understand where you are coming from. I have gone through this myself and its very frustrating.
I would call the ped. office also have demand they try to speed up another MRI asap! Maybe you could call the head of radiology at the hospital and tell them you have to have another MRI before June 24th.
I'm sorry, thats really rotten! I agree with pps in calling the ped. I'm sorry you have to deal with this!

LOL Thank you, ladies! It's nice to know that I'm not crazy for being angry or worried!!! Maybe for other reasons, but not for this.
I DID go to the doc this morning. Milo's ears checked out ok, with maybe a little scarring, which we sort of expected. The doctor was NOT happy about the MRI-left the room quickly, then remembered to come back to tell us that she was calling. LOL No answer, but she'll call back. I did get a call from the sedation nurse, who said that Milo's specific problems will require GA, so we have to go that route. She said that they can generally get kids in more quickly, too, and maybe since Milo's problems are more immediate, and not just for a check-up, that it may be a top priority, to move into one of the earlier slots! YAY! So, keep crossing your fingers for him! If it's not a pituitary issue, then I'm glad that we'll rule it out sooner rather than later, but if it is, then we can move on to treatment, I hope!
Still angry. I don't want to be. I'm not an angry person, but the person who called yesterday was the person I confirmed with a week and a half ago!!! I had to give her Milo's birthdate, I mentioned sedation again, his age again, and even asked about GA. Soooo...no excuse! I don't mind real mistakes, but feeling like someone isn't really listening to you, especially when it comes to your kid's health...grrrrrrrr.
