A quick bit of good news :)

I have been trying to catch up on all the extra appointments Summer needs in the future....she has had so many different things to keep track of being a former preemie! I finally made some phone calls and got the ball rolling for physical therapy (she is behind in her motor skills since she was so early and spent the first four months in bed!) and found out something I didn't know.

The therapy center wanted evaluations faxed to them, so I called neurosurgery. I was under the impression that she needed a follow up appt. with them and a head CT. There were even orders with a referral in the computer. So, I scheduled the CT and called to schedule with neurosurgery. The coordinator looked up Summer's chart and told me everything indicated she was given an "all clear"! They felt like there was NO need for any intervention from the neurosurgeons. She also told me she had no need for a CT and she wouldn't recommend having her get one unless the PCP doc had a reason for concern. The last I heard from the GI doc (in a great English accent) "She's bright as a button!". So nice to hear from him :) (He had been concerned for her when he saw her first head CT showing some fluid areas where brain was supposed to be (in early Oct.)...the 2nd one was greatly improved. )

YEAH! Summer has now been taken off 2 (neuro and pulmonary) extra radars! And, really important ones too! It is so scary having a premature baby...she has been so fortunate!

This Tues. we have her bi-weekly GI appt.....and that's it! Ah, so nice to have simplified a few things :)
