Nothing much to post about right now, but I do want to share a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Some tidbits, if you will.
I just heard from Dr. P's (Marissa's ENT) medical assistant that she had her twin babies (one boy, one girl) about two weeks ago and the last she heard they were supposed to be home Monday or yesterday!! I am so happy they are all healthy and doing well!
According to her medical assistant, Dr. P should be back to seeing patients around the middle of October. She told me they will start scheduling patients sometime around the end of this month or the beginning of September and that we will be one of the first to be called to get an appointment to see Dr. P when she returns in October.
We have decided that, before seeking the advice of Dr. C in Ohio regarding the inevitable surgery on Marissa's airway, we are going to consult with Dr. P to get her opinion and to see if she can do the surgery. We felt that it was only fair to inform the doctor who knows Marissa best of the latest development and allow her to put her two cents in on the situation. We will therefore be waiting about two months before any decisions are made on how to move forward. We are at peace with this. We realize we just need to be patient and it will all happen according to God's plan. I will update when I get word of when we will be able to see Dr. P.
You remember when I posted here about the beautiful dresses our friends Elizabeth, Charles and Ashleigh got for Marissa? Well, I finally got pictures taken of the other dress, so here it is:
I was so touched a couple of weeks ago to find out that a fellow blogger/special needs and trach mommy put Marissa's name into a drawing on her blog and sent Marissa this adorable handmade dress, along with a handmade bib for her and a key chain for me!!
Thanks Dana!! You are too sweet to do that for Marissa! I am going to send you a copy of these pictures in the mail real soon.
