So we had our neuropsych appointment today and OMG this was incredible. The doctor came out and get this our appointment was at 2:00 pm guess how many people were in the waiting area, just guess? US that was it imagine that a doctor who only schedules one patient for an appointment. WOW! She (the doctor) comes out and calls Noah and she is super excited to see us.
We get up and head back to her office and Noah plops in one chair and me in the other, she starts off by saying how exciting it is being in the study at Vanderbilt for STX209. Before I could say anything she proceeded to tell me that she was a participating doctor at the same study here in Memphis. She said this is he first time she has seen an individual outside the study on the medicine so we discussed how awesome we thought the medicine was and how many people will benefit from it.
Let's continue to Noah's Q & A with her it went like this:
Dr: I am going to ask you some questions ok??
Dr: Do you know what the year is?
BAM got that one!!
Dr: Do you know what month it is?
BAM another one I didn't dare tell her he was obsessed with the calendar!! LOL
Dr: Do you the date, the number?
BAM I am super impressed and beaming!!!
Dr: Is today the last day of the month?
BAM she thought she could trick him not my calendar obsessed boy.
Dr: What is the next month?
BAM I was a little worried about that one!
Dr: What is this? Pointing to her watch.
Noah: It's how you check the time.
Dr: What state do you live in?
Noah: The United Sates
CLOSE....she prompted with the "T" and he got Tennessee
Dr: I am going to hold this paper up read the words and do what it says. (it read Close your eyes)
Noah: Close your eyes and he did!!
We were finishing up and Noah spotted a model brain behind her desk and asked her, "Can I see your brain?" she looked a bit puzzled and Noah said, "that brain" pointing to the model brain behind her desk on a shelf. She said OK, it had a card with it and he checked out the brain and was looking at the card and looking at the brain. He turned the card over and held it next to the brain, I am thinking what is he doing I look over he was matching the card to the brain the parts of the brain were color coded the card had the areas of the brain listed. The doctor said, "Noah can you read any of those words?" Noah replied, "Normal brain" (that was at the top of the card) and then he said "pretend" I looked at the card he was trying to say prefrontal I thought that was a great try!!
Overall I was impressed with my little man this child NEVER ceases to amaze me!! Thank you God for choosing me to be his mom!
