Off to Dr. Sanders again!

Well, I knew it was too good to be true . . . no Rochester appointments til June??? Sumana's PT, Miss Kristen, and I took a good look at Sumana's back yesterday and did NOT like what we saw! I knew she seemed to be 'leaning' already, but her whole posture seems 'off'. Her right hip just about TOUCHES her right shoulder blade and the incision over her spine is diagonal (it used to be vertical).

Needless to say, I got on the phone IMMEDIATELY to get a message to Dr. Sanders. He does want to see her soon. Though he'll be on vacation next week, we'll get in to see him the week after. I guess it's a good thing to see him soon. His secretary said his surgery schedule for summer is already packed! Yikes!!

Our 'situation' with our foster daughter continues to be a major stress factor. Her case workers are having a hard time finding a place to send her. There is a 3-6 month wait for the diagnostic center they were hoping to get her into and they're already looking in Rochester for a temporary group home that will take her while she waits for a spot to open up. I hate to see her moved that far, but she's proven that she needs a higher level of care than is available in our region. Please keep that situation in prayer. We really need to have her moved . . . and SOON!
