So Dr. Gosman came by and looked at Karsie. For what it's worth, we love her too! Not only is she a wonderful surgeon by credential (because we haven't experienced her work firsthand yet) she really took the time to talk with us about Karsie and such. She was really impressed with how much she has grown. However, it still looks like Karsie is too small for the expanders any time soon. The space between her hip bone and the bottom of the rib cage is too small for anything yet, so we are to schedule another appointment in about 6 months for her to look her over. Even then might be too soon. We also learned that this will probably be a staged surgery where they put in small expanders for a few months, then bigger ones, then bigger ones, and so on and so forth until they feel she's big enough to handle the closure surgery. So we keep on keeping on.
