Surgery

M will be having SPML (Selective Percutaneous Myofascial Lengthening) surgery by the fabulous Dr. Nuzzo in NJ at the end of this month.  

Today she had her pre-op appointment at her pediatrician's office.  


The stickie things on her are for the EKG they ran to make sure her heart is healthy enough for surgery.  The blood draw was no fun, but she did great.  No screaming at the noise level of a jet engine into mom's ear this time.  I bribed her with fries just to make sure I didn't end up with the same ringing in my ear for 48 hours that I did the last time she had an encounter with needles.  Girlfriend has a set of pipes.  


The best part of the visit was the part where she stepped on the scale and had gained 3lbs since September!!  This is the kid who gained 1lb last year.  I've done so.many.things. to try to help her gain weight.  
I was ecstatic!!!  She's 42.3lbs now!  
This was an awesome time to gain some weight!

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
