Chicago Tribune

Ok, no small talk I'll get right to the update.

Riley~ Wonderful, awesome, fantastic!!! Couldn't have asked for a better check up! She is thriving and doing well - physically.

Keegan ~ Has Chiari. We will wait and see how things go for awhile. No need for surgery yet.

Cooper~ NO CHIARI!!! He will be my contact sport child!

and

Little Miss Carson ~ She has Chiari, but.... she also has a lot more going on. I am almost afriad to start talking about it all. I think for tonight, I will let things sink in before I try to type it out. It 's not good news, and I am afriad we may be in for a long haul with her.
I hate to leave you hanging, but it think it is for the best.

I did speak with our CF surgeon at Children's tonight, and it sounds like they will do some testing before a path is decided on. I will post more soon. I promise.

Oh, and Tuesday night, the manager from the RMDH called to see if I would be interested in talking with a reporter from the Chicago Tribune on Wed. I agreed. So, last night I met with the reporter who is doing a story on families who stay at the RMDH and see Dr. Frim.
The story should be in this Sundays Chicago Tribune paper. It should be fun to read. I can't wait to see it!

So, We've had some great news....Cooper and Riley, Good news with Keegan, and some not so good news with Carson.

I am just trying to process everything and pass on the news to Matt.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.

ALSO, This is to whoever dropped off the Tumbleweed gift card tonight.

THANK YOU!!
