Happy 2nd Family Day (June 17)
We've had a nice year-long break from any medical trips, but this one, cranial-facial "head" clinic, was right on Apple's Family Day Anniversary. We got up before 5am and hit the road. All the girls travel very well. Clinic went great. It's been 18 months since our last one and Apple was all caught up developmentally. The consensus is that she's doing great and for me to keep up what we're doing. The cranial-facial surgeon came in with THREE residents, perfectly tailored suit, as usual, said how well her posterior cranial distraction had gone and her frontal orbital advancement. I cracked up and had to say it, "Dr. M, you've not done the orbital advancement yet!" He got out of there pretty fast and I did gloat because he is a surgeon with a God-complex and needs to be reminded, occasionally, that he's only human.
After clinic there was a pizza lunch for all the families. Then, we visited our adoption agency and old neighborhood where we used to live. We took My Firefighter to IKEA for the first time and to our favorite Mexican restaurant for dinner. We drove home in the wee hours of the morning, having packed too much into our time up there, but it was My Firefighter's first time seeing where we used to live.
