It's official. Karsie's doctor appointments this year are done in San Diego. We're sad to be leaving them as pretty much every doctor has been amazing, but it's exciting to leave for home. Our plan is to leave Thursday night and arrive in Bakersfield on Friday.

Today Karsie saw the G.I. doctors. Everything looked great. There wasn't much done except a look at her lab work that was done a bit ago. Her liver functions are pretty much normal, especially for her. We will be returning in a month or so to talk with nutrition and G.I. together about her feeding. But she is looking great!

Her blister popped. We thought she wet herself with a blowout from her diaper, but it was the "juice" from her blister. So now we have a new thing to look at on her belly. Hopefully it's a quick heal. Tomorrow is "goodbye day" for the grandparents. Nana and Grandpa will be spending as much time smothering Karsie as they can before she leaves.


  1. Yeah for home at last!!! Safe travels! Cory

  2. Wow, the end of a year with a LOT of doctor's appointments! It's been a really big year for you... with some big trials but a whole lot of joy in the end. I hope next year is filled with even more joy... but with less hardships. May you never again spend this much time in hospitals and doctor's offices! :)

  3. Please keep us posted. We pray that you have a safe trip and a good time settling in at home. Christmas blessings to you all!

  4. Please drive safely and I can't wait to have you back in Btown! I also can't wait to meet Miss Karsie! You let me know when you are home and rested and up for a visit!

  5. You can breathe a big sigh now. It will be wonderful to sleep in your very own bed and have Karsie in her own home! Congratulations and please do keep us updated.

  6. Hope you got home safe and sound.
    What an amazing journey with more to come.
    I'm sorry I didn't get to meet Karsie, but I know one day when she visits Grandma & Grandpa, I'll get to meet her.
    Merry Christmas to you all.
    Love & Prayers, Cynthia
