Ever since Solveig took us under her wing, the amount of official looking envelopes in our letterbox has increased. All letters from any branch of the health care system will obviously raise the pulse somewhat, but these days most of them contain times for return visits, tests or examinations. Abbe is frequently examined by different members of the regional 22q11 specialist team.
And once more I realise how lucky we are to be living close to Gothenburg. I can’t remember how many different doctors and specialists Solveig sent letters of referral to, but it was quite a few. And as far as I understand, if you’re from some other part of the country they put all the times in a row, within a week or so. Which is nice, I mean that means less travelling, but the stress of it? Doing it all in the one go? Especially for the child in question.
