We heard back from Shriner's today. You'll never believe when they plan on doing my first hand surgery - 8/27/08 - that's right, my first birthday! They will admit me on 8/26/08, do the surgery on my right hand to remove my thumb and then if all goes well I will be discharge on 8/28/08. When they found out it would be my birthday the nurse said they would have to make sure and do something special for me.
We also heard back from Elena at Dr Schendel's office today. She won't be able to order a CT scan at UC Davis but suggested that maybe my pediatrican, Dr Scott might be able to get me in. Mommy gave Dr Scott a call and she got right on it. We are hoping that tomorrow we will get a call back from UC Davis with a date. The last CT scan wasn't too bad, but it required sedation so it's a little more involved then just an xray.
Mommy figured out the other day that I love magnets so today she found the letter and number magnets she remembers having as a child. I loved them! Daddy discovered that my distractors are metal because the magnets stick to my cheeks! My cousin, Traiton, is such a smartie pants and knows almost all his letter already so I am going to have work awfully hard to catch up to him. Good thing I am starting now!
So Mommy is leaving for Salt Lake tomorrow and will be home Sunday. She is excited to see everyone, espescially baby Jackson, but she is really sad leaving me with everything going on with my jaw. Daddy is such a pro, though, so Mommy knows he will take great care of me. He says he will update the blog while she is gone though to keep you all up to date!
