Orthopedic Appointment

Faith continues to do well since her last bleeding episode back in early February.  Jesi took her to the orthopedic doctor on Tuesday.  She wanted them to check her back because Faith was having some trouble standing up.  She would lean over every time we had her standing.  This hasn't been happening lately which has made us wonder if she had injured her foot or the ear infection she had caused the problem especially since the doctor did not see any real change in her back and said he hips were fine and not out of alignment.  Since she can't talk and tell us that she is hurting, we just don't know what is happening sometimes.  It really requires some thinking skills to figure this child out.

After having Rick Santorum be the only other Trisomy parent we had met, this past week we met 2 other Trisomy parents.  We had the privilege to meet Mina, Juwan, and Mylah, and Jesi got to meet Kathleen McCartney and her son.  Grace was able to babysit for her.  So it was a busy week.

Overall Faith continues to do well, and her feeding issues have improved, but it is still not easy feeding...just easier than it was.
