Doctors, doctors, doctors

We had a neurologist appointment today. She switched neurologists since her other one moved. The appointment went okay. He referred her to two other doctors to help keep track of her spasticity and scoliosis (looks like she has scoliosis which really didn't surprise us.) *Sigh* I hate going to doctor's appointments because they are so depressing. :-(

While we were at S&W, I decided to take Sierra to NICU to say "Hi" to some of the nurses there. It was SO difficult to go there. NICU is on the opposite side of the hospital, which means it was a long walk. On my walk over, I almost turned around several times. The sights, sounds, and smells were emotionally overwhelming. They brought back floods of memories; memories that I wish did not exist.

We did get to see a few of the NICU nurses. It was good to see them. The NICU nurses are wonderful!

I called up ECI (Early Childhood Intervention) today to see about getting Sierra on it. They are going to contact me in a few days. Then they will go over which types of therapy she will receive.

You're a brave lady and an amazing mom. Thanks for doing this blog, even though I've never met y'all I think about and pray for Sierra everyday, it's nice to keep up on her life - and yours. :)
