How we somehow lost our neurologist

Strange, here we were, thinking we had at least one person that seemed to understand A.'s condition. And now he's gone. All within a 30 minute session.

Let me elaborate a bit. We were meeting A.'s neurologist, as we do every six months, when the first thing he said was that he was leaving town for a year to go study somewhere in the United States. O...K... He then tells us about some medication he feels A. should take that would probably work well with his Concerta. Some kind of alpha blocker, I believe. I'll post more about it when I find the documentation he gave us. I already know Sandra won't want to give A. any new drug and I can understand why, but I ask some questions anyway so we can have as much information as possible. I learn that one of the recommenced drugs isn't really available in Canada, but can be ordered if a doctor signs the demand, which will probably be hard to do because of the current negotiations with the government.

And then it's over. Thank you and good-bye. No "here's another doctor you can see while I'm gone", no "my secretary will call you when I get back", nothing. We leave and, once again, start wondering what our next step should be. A few days later, we're still not sure.
