    Ok guys I promise ill only do this once but if i dont let this out im afraid im going to burst :scared:

    I took my ds (7) to a hospital appointment yesterday he has eye cancer and had his eye removed a spart of the treatment and needed a new eye the nearest place that can do this for children is a 2 hr drive - that didnt bother me as we have been before and I knew it was going to be horrendous.
    Well it took us nearly 3 hours because of roadworks on the motorway and I was a little stressed as ds had been sick by the time we got there :crazy2:

    We were kept waiting for ages and then when we did go in she looked at him and said he was too uill for her to mess with him and she will schedule us back in for another appointment on weds !! *** he will look the same then if we get stuck in traffic :rolleyes2

    Im so mad and exhausted mentally and physically I just cant face the journey again next week . I dont really want to moan to friends and family *** thats all i seem to do at the moment. Can i have some pixie dust pixiedust: and a slap so I can pull myself together

    Thanks guys Louise x

    Aww i feel for you Louise, you sound like you need a touch of ... pixiedust: pixiedust:

    Motherhood can be exhausting at the best of times let alone what you and your family are going through at the moment.

    I hope your little one gets the treatment he needs and sooner rather than later.


    Take care :)

    Oh what a nightmare. You poor thing it's no wonder you are stressed. I hope everything goes well on Wednesday. Rant away to us as much as you like....:grouphug:

    Would it help if you got there an hour earlier than you appointment time so your son can sit down & have a drink/time to recover from the journey before your appointment? I don't know any car sickness remedies but wish you luck & lots of pixie dust. pixiedust: pixiedust: pixiedust:

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the hugs and pixie dust I seriously did need to vent !! I try so hard to keep it together for the kids and hubby *** he thinks he lets me down when he has to work and cant come with us I dont mind ut he dont get it !!
    Please dont pity us ds was diagnosied 6 years ago so this really is normal life for us its only when we have a rubbish appointment like yesterday that it really gets to me the rest of the time we are a normal family :thumbsup2
    Thanks again guys for allowing me to vent !!

    That's dreadful. We've had to go from Burton to Birmingham Childrens Hospital for appointments and been kept waiting ages. They are very good now, but when he was very young the waiting time seemed forever. In October this year my DS is being handed over to adult care - where's my baby gone! We make a day of it now and go on the train, is that an option for you if your DS is not a good car passenger? I imagine the appointments are stressful enough without adding an horrendous car journey to the equation.

    That's terrible - she should have offered to see you a couple of hours later when he had chance to get over his travel sickness.

    Have you tried joy rider travel sickness pills - these really help my girls.

    Good luck for your next visit - I hope it's more sucessful. :grouphug:

    Ive never tried any travel sickness pills or remedies as he refuses to take anything ! my neighbour said it helps if he wears a sweatband so we will try that next time !! I did phone the childrns hospital yesterdy and explained how bad the appointment was - as well as chasing our fit to fly form - and she said that on weds we can go there instead and the artificial eye woman will have to come to us ! RESULT !!! Im now feeling a load better about weds keep ur fingerd crossed for me that we also get our fit to fly certicate then we can start to get properly excited - we are actually most of the way there then !!!
    Thanks again guys for listening !!
