“And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust.” — Queen
More good news today! After the IEP meeting this morning, we had to take Nik to an appointment with the geneticist, Dr. B. All Nik’s tests look wonderful —no identifiable anomalies, syndromes, etc. Dr. B talked to us a bit about future likelihood of disability or prematurity for another pregnancy and told us we were doing an amazing job. He was impressed with how well we handle everything Nik’s been through. Niksdad and I laughed. I guess our teamwork really does pay off. We’ve gotten much better at finding release valves in our daily lives to ease the pressures.
Dr. B said, unless something comes up with Nik that we want to have him investigate from a genetics perspective, he really doesn’t need to see Nik again for another two years. I could kiss the man I am so happy to hear those words! One less doctor in our very large medical cadre —Sweet!
Let’s see, that leaves the cardiologist, the pulmonologist, the ophthalmologist, the neurologist (2), the gastroenterologist, the behavioral psychologist, the nutritionist, the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker…
I can go to bed happy tonight…and EARLY!
