Hi Ho, Hi Ho
Its off to Children's Mercy Hospital we go...
Today Cory, Mason , and I went to CMH for a meeting with the genetic counselor. We TOTALLY didnt know what to expect but we jumped in the car and off we went. We arrived right on time and got checked in (after all the nurses finished fawning over Mason) Our nurse called us back to check Mason's weight & height. He is now 7lbs 15oz and 20inches long! Then Mason decided he was ready to eat... so mommy took over so Mason could get his MILKY Time on.
Well sure as day, the counselor walks in and looks around the room (looking for mason) and kinda looks puzzeld, until she looks at me with a blanket thrown over my shoulder, then said " Oh there he is, all I seen was tiny feet sticking out"! So Mason continued hoggin out on milk while we chatted with the counselor. She was super informative and really easy to talk to. We actually (by we I mean Cory) had lots in common. We did find out some great news while we were there. Mason's form of DS is NOT HEREDITARY! It was just a "fluke" ( although I dont think it was a fluke...it was Gods Plan for Mason). Also they think Mason has a mild form of Down syndrome!!!!! So again, GOD was good to us. We are so thankful our little guy is doing so so so well!
Now if we can just get past open heart surgery...mommy will be much happier!
