When the doctor finally came in he decided that he wanted a scope her again. That is a pretty painful process, but Livi did a very good job. They squirt saline solution in her nose and then put a scope in and down her throat to look around. The hardest part is that I have to hold her the whole time. She was crying like crazy, but stopped as soon as he was done and never made another peep!
The doctor said that everything looked good! GREAT news for us. He said that “he thinks that she is out of the woods…but she isn’t quite out of the woods yet”…those were really his words. Ha. Anywho…we have to go back one more time in 4 months. If she looks good again then I think that she will be cleared!
She has come SO far since that initial surgery. We are very lucky to have gotten the referral to that hospital. They are definitely the best of the best!
On Tuesday I went down to Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit with Ryan for his hernia. We didn’t know quite how long it would take to find the place or what traffic would be like, so we ended up getting there an hour and a half early, ugh. THEN, we hear that this doctor is running up to TWO HOURS behind. Blah. All together we were there for about 6 hours….tack the 4+ hour trip on to that…and the whoe ting took ALL DAY!
Again, we hear that this doctor is the best of the best, so it is worth it. Come to find out Ryan has bi-lateral hernias…one on each side! Poor guy. The left side is a re-tear. He has already had 2 sports hernia surgery’s to repair that side. SO, we will be addressing that side first. The doc said that he would never do both sides at the same time because of the extreme pain. He will operate on Ryan’s left side on Monday, July 25th.
I feel so bad for Ryan because he has been in an extreme amount of pain for quite some time now. I really hope that this helps him!!
This past weekend we got some pics taken by the awesome Miranda at MP Photography. She posted these two sneak peaks on Facebook. Could they be ANY cuter?!?
