Yahoo... you guys get 2 posts in one day! So, Blair had her 1 year shots and checkup today. All was going great and they were telling me how great she looked. UNTIL... and I mean... UNTIL they told me she doesn't have a Spleen? WHAT? I know the look of shock was written all over my face. So, not only does she have her Omphalocele... a rotated heart... now a missing Spleen. And, like Dr. Cadle said it's good information to know going forward since the Spleen is the part of the body that holds all of the B-Cell White Blood Cells.
That means she will need extra vaccines when she gets older to help fight off any bad germs that her little body cannot fight off without her Spleen. I know people have to have their Spleen removed sometimes due to accidents and I've heard of people being born without kidneys. So, I know it's out there. Just didn't know it was in my neck of the woods... like our house!
There you have it! As if I need ONE MORE THING to worry about!
