Pediatric Appointment

Yesterday we went to the final pediatrician appointment in San Diego (at least that we know of). We are very sad to say goodbye to our doctor as she is wonderful, but excited to take her home and meet a new one.  Hopefully he will be as good.  

Everything with Karsie looks as good as can be expected.  She weighed in at 9 lbs. 7 oz.  She's finally getting to the weight of some big babies at birth.  She's still got another pound to go to get to her mommy's birth weight.  

We haven't mentioned Pinky in a while, but it's almost completely skin now.  There is a little area, maybe the size of a half dollar, that is still granulation tissue, but even that is starting to look like it's ready to turn into skin.  It also looks smaller compared to her body.  It's still a pretty good size, but it used to be really tall and the base is now bigger which means it's probably going into her abdomen.  We're working on a little video that goes through Karsie's first few months and we'll try to get in a few good pictures of Karsie's current skin on Pinky. 

One appointment down, four to go.  Next up:  Surgery and neurology.  


  1. So glad everything is going well! Praying for you and for the doctors during your marathon of appointments!

  2. Such good news and progress! You will be in a normal routine in no time, I'm sure. Praying for continued progress always. Karsie is such a miracle and testament to God's grace and goodness. Blessings to you all!
