"She's boring"

To any parent of a preemie child with congenital heart defects and liver disease LOVES the words - "She's boring."  That's exactly what the geneticist said yesterday at Duke.  We had a follow up appointment just to be sure Claire was not showing any signs or symptoms from the Androgenetic Biparental Mosaicism and/or Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome.  Claire shows NO signs of anything except a healthy toddler! 

The geneticist had done her homework and knew what to look for.  She said with BWS, it would be obvious if Claire had that.  And there is nothing showing Claire has BWS.  And the ABM is so rare/new, they will just continue to research and follow up. 

We don't have to go back for 18 months!  Thank God! 

We visited with Aunt Amanda and Uncle Colby and the dogs.  Claire did awesome on the drive up and back.  She is growing up so fast!  I think we watched Elmo DVDs for 3 solid hours. 

We also got to visit a few minutes with Dr. Rachel while we waited for our appointment.  We love her!  And Claire and I read a few books while waiting for the doctor.  They let us wait in the lobby since they quickly realized how Claire was terrified of the offices!
