With the arrival of Dr Knappenberger, ENT, St Francis ambulatory department is now seeing more kids. Once a month surgeries are performed in Maryville for ear, nose, and throat problems by the doctor. He did Mady's surgery in St Joe in February before he started coming to Maryville. What a convience for everyone here, plus we discovered the surgery center in St Joe does not have a program. They had Memory, Candy Land, and Chutes and Ladders to play but nothing for comfort. Of course Mady had her Two Night-Night and her Abby Bear with her. We did get her a stuffed kitty to have when we got to the surgery center too. We are so glad we are able to help these kids out!
On a personal note, Elly had her 15 month check-up yesterday and has gained weight! She is up to 18 pounds! We finally made it on the chart and is heavier than JackJack ... well the last time I weighed him anyway. We did also get a new vehicle. It's a green Volvo suv and supposed to be the safest vehicle on the road...good choice, huh.
