St. Louis Appointment on Friday

Sorry I'm just now getting this out here! I needed to download some pics first. Anywho... Friday's appointment went well with Dr. Kane. He is very pleased with how her belly is healing. He said we are waiting for the scab to fall off before they do the skin graft. It's probably the size of a half dollar (maybe a bit bigger) that they will have to graft. He said if we just let the "red" skin grow where that area is then it will be like her Omphalocele skin and break down easily. So, we wait... we wait for the scab to fall off.

I also got the opportunity to meet this sweet family. They are going to have an O baby in Oct. and choose to use St. Louis Children's as their hospital after hearing my story. I'm so excited to meet their baby girl as we will be in St. Louis once again ON THE SAME day that she is scheduled to have a C-Section. Please go HERE and check out their page and pray for their baby girl. So far everything looks good with her... kind of a similar story to Blair's.

Other than that just fighting off a nasty sinus infection. I finally broke down and went to the clinic yesterday. Got a nice steroid shot (which made me feel almost instantly better) and some antibiotics. Got a little more sleep last night compared to the 2 previous nights! Although my rear hurts I think I'm gonna make it! :)

Hugs- Tiffany

Nope we aren't in Boston, but I'm kicking myself for not just going there in the first place. We have already had problems with cardiology here so I don't know why I keep coming back. Maybe because they are the only cardiologists in Utah. We are looking into Childrens hospital LA because they are also in the top ten and we want to move there anyway.

It's always so helpful when you meet others in your same situation. It's easy to feel isolated until you meet those people!

How wonderful that you were able to help another family through their journey! I now that I myself have learned a lot from Miss Blair Bottoms!
