January 9th, 2009


We took Miss Sami to the dr today. She weighed a whopping 5 pounds 13 ounces. So, she gained a whole pound in 2 weeks again! The dr was very happy with her and said that her weight is not a concern to him anymore. It was a simple statement, but really meant a lot to hear. We did get to talking with him about her birthmark again and he wants us to pursue further advice and maybe treatment. Her birthmark is called a hemangioma - you can learn more here http:www.birthmark.org. These types can grow until the child is 18 months and then they will start to fade and shrink. However, that can take up to 10 years. Because of where Sami's is located we are having to worry about it affecting her eating and breathing. Ugh... just when I thought I could start to breathe again. So, tomorrow I will take her to an ENT and then Friday we are traveling to Tucson to see a dermatologist there. He is one I found through birthmark.org and is supposed to be the best in AZ.


I had to get together some pictures for the doctors, so they can see the progression...
