|Does NOT LOVE wearing the eye patch|
Elizabeth had her 1st dentist appointment and another optometry appointment back in July, which went well. She still has to wear a patch over her left eye, we increased it to 6 hours a day to try and correct the laziness in the right eye. She also saw an orthopedic Dr just to follow up with a fractured vertebrae that was found while we were in Texas. She will be followed by them due to the low bone density and hyper-flexabilty of her joints/muscles just to be sure we prevent and avoid injuries. She will see endocrinology this week. She has not grown much at all in height, so we will be discussing options as far as human growth hormones and testing to see what if anything can be done to help her. Basically being on steroids since 3 months old has really affected her growth, but her genetic condition can also cause some forms of dwarfism, so we just want to figure out for sure what the cause is and how we can move forward.
The biggest news, is that Elizabeth will be starting preschool within the next few weeks at Siskin Children's Institute here in Chattanooga. We are super excited for her and scared at the same time. Of course we are worried about the germs and her getting sick, but the whole point of transplant is so that she will be able to live "as normal as possible" and I really feel being around other kids and learning from them will benefit her.

Hoping for continued good health, and witnessing lots of miracles and milestones!!
