More Appointments

We went to the neurosurgeon yesterday for a follow-up. Her surgery site looks fine, but her head circumference was up 2 1/2cm, so we were sent over for an ultrasound. Her ventricles are dilated a bit more. 7mm on one side, and 10 on the other. Still not hydrocephalus, but they want to watch it. So, we go back in 2 weeks for another ultrasound.

We also have an appt next Friday with a urologist to fully evaluate her urinary function.

Everything is going well at home. She sleeps most of the night, just wakes up to eat. (hope that continues...) She prefers to be held during the day, but I can't blame her. I like to be held too. :)

I still need to take her in for a urine check and schedule her 4 week check-up with our local doctor. I think we will have weekly visits of some kind for a while. Very tiring, but worth it.

I had a request to get more pictures up of the girls, so I'll try and get some of Abigail up. I put one up of Hannah, but need a current one of miss Abby.

I continue to covet your prayers. I strive to be anxious about nothing, but it takes some effort....


  1. I continue to praise God for His faithfulness and goodness over this little sweet angel. God truly does hear the prayers of a righteous man.

    The rash must be improving then?

    Love to you!

  2. Kim,
    Just a note to let you know you are still in our thoughts. I know things must be hard but I see you are handling it like a trooper. We appreciate the blog so we can follow how the baby and you are doing. It was a great solution. Tell my sister "Hi"for me.
