Gossip: a twist in the saga
So, I just received a call from the pediatrician's office. He says we can see him after all. Which really begs the question...
What the heck went down yesterday?!
Part of me is very happy this is over with no apparent hard feelings (he is our neighbor, so we do have to see him from time to time), but part of me wonders what happened in the first place. Maybe he was having a bad day? Maybe it was the office staff? I have no idea. I doubt we'll ever know.
I smiled and said we would just stick with a different doctor for now, but to please thank him for thinking of us.
Ran into the neighbor who recommended him in the first place. I called her yesterday to ask about the urgent care clinic, but I hadn't updated her when we were dumped. She said she saw him last night and asked if he'd met us. She told him she knew we'd missed our appointment that morning but that I "felt appropriately bad about it" (I was in my crying phase when I called her about urgent care). She went on to say that she had told us that he would never leave us high and dry if a child needed care and that it would be all right.
And today his office calls us and offers us a place back in the fold.
