Dr. Lockheart

I'll make this short and sweet.

Tomorrow we,(the "we" being Josh and I), have our appointment with the pediactric genetic specialist. Her specialty is babies with anomolies. We have never seen her before, but she is supposed to be a wonderful doctor that is one of the leading doctors in our country on pediatric genetics(or so the world wide web says.). She has all of mine and Treyson's records and medical reports. She will talk to us about Treyson and answer any questions that we have, but we are also recieving genetic counseling. It is most likely that Treyson's bilateral renal agenesis(no kidneys) was a fluke, but if there is a hereditary connection then we have up to a 25% chance of this occuring again if there is a future pregnancy.

I have a feeling that tomorrow will be an emotional day, so it is likely that I will not give an update about our appointment until Saturday. Plus, we have to drive to UTMB Galveston for our appointment, so I'll be tired and puffy eyed by the time we get home.

I am looking forward to the smell of the ocean though.

Good luck sweetie. I am sure it will be an emotionally draining day, but hopefully you will get some useful information.
Take care, and update when you can. Praying for you!

Ok..so...I was looking through another blog and she had a really cute background so I checked out where she got it. It's www.thecutestblogontheblock.com. I started scrolling through and saw something and immediately thought of you. If you have time maybe you could check it out. Go to the site and I think you have to create a user name and password, but scroll down to "tropical" and the first one was palm trees and surfboards. wow, I probably said a lot just to get to the point about the background..lol..but check it out!!

You are in my thoughts. I know how hard it is to go and rehash things. It's like re-opening a wound. Please let us know what you've learned when you're able!
