Genetics/Cranio facial- She is the right weight and age to get her lip and nose fix. We just need a clearance from Cardio. It will most likely happen 5 months(august-ish). She is back to gaining weight and growing taller. Yeah!!
Cardio- Heart is doing the same, which is good. We are on target for probably a heart fix when she is one. We will get an echo next appointment. They also cleared her for any surgeries.
Endocrine- All is good. She gave us a year prescription for 2 of her meds. The shot is a whole other story. We are still waiting to see if our insurance will even cover it. Really, don't even get me started on this topic. We will be doing labs next month to see how her thyroid is. And we are getting her a medic alert bracelet for her adrenal insufficiency(cortisol).
Unfortunately her last appointment took f o r e v e r, so i tried to feed her in the car(not while driving.) To make a long/frustrating story short, it did not go over well....at all. There were tears(from both of us) and hot water spilling all over me and the car. So I tried to rush home in traffic with my screaming baby. Good news is we all survived and I learned a valuable lesson.
1. ONLY 1 APPOINTMENT A DAY!
2. I will always schedule around her feedings, even if it means I have to wait a week.
3. I have to remember that Davy is a person and that means..................
I can drive in the carpool lane. I totally forgot this until I was almost home. Come on Ruth , get with the program.
