Maxine had her first appointment at Dartmouth Medical Center in Hanover, NH today. We make the drive down frequently for Evelyn. Max saw the geneticist there. She seemed great and has an energy with which I am really comfortable. It was a relief to have a clean slate with a doctor. She didn’t say a peep about nursing. Phew.
Like me, she seems to feel it is possible that Maxine has some sort of overgrowth disorder. She is running a test for Beckwith Weidemann and taking a look at some of Maxine’s little chromosomes.
Maxine was not too happy to be in another hospital. She has obviously connecting the dots when it comes to that. So we are going to do the blood draw next week when we go back down for Evelyn’s sedated hearing test. The fun never stops here.
I couldn’t help but remember a time when both girls screamed in the car. Non stop. Seriously. It was horrible. I often ended up crying as well. They have both turned into peaceful riders. I can’t help but to think that the universe intervened on my behalf knowing that we would be taking these frequent jaunts down to NH.
I will keep you posted as we learn more.
