Taking walks out in the meadow preserve by our house with my little crew makes me happy, so we try to do that every day. I brought along my phone and caught these cute pics of Isabel.
On Tuesday, Isabel and I headed down to Children's Hospital. We met with a orthopedic hand surgeon that specializes in radial club hands. I was able to have most of my questions answered and we have a plan for Isabel. She will have centralization surgery in April on both her hands. She will be in casts for 6 weeks. After that, she will have surgery to remove her pointer fingers, rotate them and place them where her thumbs should be. So, she will have 3 fingers and a thumb. : ) I'll miss her one little (non-functioning) thumb, but I'm sure she will be glad to have better use of her hands.
|She wasn't all that happy in the waiting room.|
And finally, this picture just makes me smile. Even though she may not look all that happy, she is reaching for me and calling me "mama" in this picture. Precious!
