It has been one year since Livi Kay has had her surgery. WOW…that was a fast year. I can remember how terrified I was a year ago. Our sweet baby girl was going through SO much…and she was just so tiny then.

Well, I am happy to report that that chapter has closed and we can move on now. Livi had a checkup at U of M Children’s Hospital on Monday. We have been going back ever few months for a scope and check-up. The appointments are always pretty painful, as they do not put her out for the scope. The older she gets, the harder it becomes because she totally remembers what is coming and fights like a crazy woman.

Monday was no different, painful to watch…but the results were MUCH better. Even as recently as November (at our last appt.) the doc still thought that he saw a little mass at the base of her throat. There was always the threat that it would come back, and another surgery would be required.

This time…she looked GREAT. Her larynx and pharynx were shaped perfectly, no mass, no signs of anything at all. And DEFINITLY nothing wrong with her vocal cords…she can scream with the best of them.

SO, the doc released us and we don’t have to go back to the clinic at all. Hallelujah!

We are so lucky that they found what was causing Liv’s issues at such a young age…I shudder to think what could have happened had they not found the cyst. Who knows how fast it could have grown. We had excellent care from everyone at U of M. I am so thankful….and I know that she had SO many people thinking about her and praying for her…thank you for all of that. She is such a healthy, happy, vibrant little thing today :)


Pictures on the way down...we had to leave pretty early...Liv wasn't so sure about that:
Her new "cheese" face...it's not pretty....hopefully this is just a phase!
