Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday! We had a very busy week...Mylee had therapy almost everyday last week and several doctor appointments. She was fitted for her leg braces on Wednesday and was an extremely good girl. She sat on the hospital bed while they wrapped her legs in material that was similiar to a cast and then he cut the so called cast off. These will be used to mold her braces. We have Mylee's first fitting on Wednesday, August 6th. Ironically, this is the same day as our next OB appointment. I can't believe I am almost 12 weeks.

Mylee also had a scheduled appoinment on Friday with Dr. P (opthomologist). Dave and I were almost convinced she would be scheduled for another eye surgery because her right eye has started to cross again. The doctor had warned us that he may need to do a touch up surgery the last time we were in his office. Instead, he changed Mylee's prescription on her glasses and she is to wear them for another 3 months. Our next appointment is scheduled for October. If the eye has not corrected by then using her new prescription, then we will talk about a "touch up" surgery.

Great news on the vital stimulation front! I had a heart to heart talk with the head speech pathologist at Children's Hospital (I probably wasn't very nice) and Mylee will be scheduled sometime in September with a therapist by the name of Lindsay. We are very excited this is somewhat scheduled. Vital Stimulation will be probably our last hope for Mylee in order to swallow properly. We are very anxious to get started! I can't belive she isn't going to be able to eat birthday cake on her birthday! It breaks my heart!! We are still undecided if we are going to cheat a little bit and at least give her a taste of some frosting! I think it will depend on how congested she sounds that day!

We are getting ready to visit Nana and Papa in California. We leave on Thursday of this upcoming week. We are very excited to see our extended family on Saturday at Mylee's birthday party. And of course to see Uncle Will and Auntie Sissy!! We have a lot to do before we leave on Thursday, all I can say is laundry, laundry, and more laundry!

Hoping everyone has had a wonderful weekend! We would like to send a shout out to Nate Heineman, Happy 2nd Birthday kiddo!! We wish we could have made it to your birthday party usual we are late on sending your birthday gift, but no worries because you will receive it very soon!
