Every time I would take Lily to the cardiologist, they'd ask me if her face ever got sweaty or broke out in cold sweats. I think this only happened once, and not since surgery. I told them in October that her feet sometimes sweat, and they brushed it off.
But man, her hands and feet sweat like crazy now, and I just seem to be noticing it more lately. Of course I am paranoid, but I'm trying to remind myself that some people just sweat more than others. It doesn't help that our August appt kind of sucked, and our October one was so rushed and impersonal that even though she told me Lily looked better, I wasn't very reassured.
I donno. It's 20 degrees here, and her hands and feet still sweat. She can barely wear shoes because her feet sweat like crazy. Sometimes they are very warm, sometimes they are cold and clammy. I finally got over feeling crazy and put in a call to our pediatrician today, and some ditzy nurse I've never spoken to called me back and needless to say, it was a waste of my time and I'm waiting to hear back with an answer better than "I don't know." I guess I just need to know if it's worth making an appt for or not.
Am I totally crazy?
