Following a quick lunch, we went to Lainey's appointment at the Cystic Fibrosis Center. Every time I step foot in the door of the center, I get an overwhelming sense of comfort and relief. Every person in the center is so caring and personally invested in your child's health. They are an awesome addition to our family and friends support group! Several members of her care team are no longer at the CF Center due to a few changes with Egleston and Emory. The two hospitals at one time worked hand in hand, but have slowly parted. Now that the hospital has moved some of the patients from the CF Center, which is part of Emory more so than Egleston, many of the team moved as well. With their seniority, leaving Egleston would mean starting over in their career. The new people are just as caring as the ones we have become to know and like so well. Our favorite, Dr. Caplan, will probably die doing what he loves best ~ taking care of his delicate patients. We love him so much, we have decided to adopt Dr. Caplan as another great grandpa for Lainey!
Lainey and Doctor Caplan
We received frustrating news on Monday from the kids' pediatrician. Supposedly the tubes used to collect Logan and Liam's blood sample for the CF test were not the correct tubes. The cap on the tubes were a different color yellow than what they typically use when testing for genetic diseases. All in all, the blood samples are no good. They must be drawn again! I am refusing to go through that torture again...It is Sid's turn! Most of all, I hate it for the boys. They should not have to go through the pain again because somebody used the wrong colored tube lid when collecting their blood! For those of you that know what I am like when I am mad, be assured the pediatrician will know as well! I am waiting for a phone call back from him! When we have more news on the boys' tests, I'll let you know.
Reminder ~ Lainey will be baptised at 10:55 on Sunday at Gainesville First United Methodist Church! Please join us if you would like. Thank you for all of your support! Prayers are always needed and greatly appreciated! Please continue to pray for good health, weight gain, working enzymes, and correctly gathered blood samples!
Much Love from our family to yours,
