Luke has had a busy few weeks, I think at last count we’ve seen 7 or 8 specialists. I feel like I can give his history and the latest update in my sleep. To be honest, it was an avalanche of information. And to be even more honest, it was mostly good news. It was just SO much information and SO many emotions. I’m not trying to be all dramatic, I’m just telling you how I feel.
That’s what happens when you go see all those doctors so close to a birthday. Lots of things are starting to bubble over. I kinda feel like the pot has been on a low simmer for the past few months, and it just got turned to high. September is turning into a tough month for me, emotionally. A friend blogged recently about the birthday of her son (he was a preemie, too) and how the day itself felt a little – well – not so huggy, happy, skippy. She may not have used those exact words, but work with me. It just dredges up so many things – the anticipation of his birth, the unknowns, the scary days, the kick you in your gut days, the happy stuff, the awesome people…you see where I’m going with all that? I suppose those that have walked in our shoes understand and many more can empathize. I’m sure I’ll be blogging about it all next week…said BIG boy is turning two on Sunday. Not. Possible.
That turned into a way long intro about all the news. Sorry. Here goes:
TOP TEN: THINGS WE LEARNED ABOUT LUKE
1. He has even more rockstar specialists. Below is his developmental pediatrician, Dr. Fasci, his geneticist, Dr. Immken and his cardiologist, Dr. Johnson. You will get the skinny on all three later this week and how much I heart them all, cross my heart.
