An update on yesterday and today. Read More
It never happens that we have a trip to Indy, to see one of Bai’s specialists, and another calls to see if we could perhaps come on that exact day too. No. It typically goes, I made Bai 2 appointments for the same day – woohoo!!! – and 2 days before said appointments, one doctor… Read More
Surgery will be first thing in the morning tomorrow to repair the spinal fluid leak coming from Bailynn’s back. I will let everyone know how it goes after the procedure.
