Merritt has an appointment at Shriners Hospital in Tampa on Wednesday. We are excited and anxious about this. If you have read my previous posts, you know that we have been given 2 estimations regarding Merritt's LLD. The first at a little over 2 inches and the second at almost 5 inches. I am thinking that a third opinion will really help us to understand Merritt's leg.
Plus, Shriners seems totally awesome! If you haven't checked out their facilities, you can at this link... Shriners Tampa. I watched the online tour and was really impressed.
Well, our appointment is Wednesday morning at 10:30. The whole family is going. So, it should be an adventure. 4 hours in a mini-van with an almost 1 year old, a 2 1/2 year old, a big grumpy 29 year old (yes, that would be my husband, ha), and me - as a nervous wreck! My biggest fear is that this doctor is going to give us even more bad news; that Merritt's LLD is going to be even larger. Honestly, I don't know how I will even handle that.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I'll let you guys know how it works out!
