Tiptoe through the tulips

We had an interesting phone call earlier this week.

Em's last botox injection was on March 17.  At her follow-up appointment on April 15, Dr. Kaitz was thrilled with her progress.  So much so that she asked us to skip Em's next botox injection on June 23 and since she was outgrowing her braces, we could also skip out on wearing those and getting a bigger pair made until we knew more at her next check up on July 26, which brings us to our phone call earlier this week.

Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus is really good about calling their patients to remind them of appointments and touching base when necessary schedule changes arise.  This particular call has me a little concerned for several reasons.  The call was to let us know that our appointment with Dr. Kaitz has been canceled and rescheduled for September because Dr. Kaitz is out on medical leave.  My first thought was worry for Dr. Kaitz... we love her!  Our appointment for September has been scheduled with a different doctor that we've never seen in the office before. 

We're going to keep the September appointment and play it out but I have my concerns.
  1. Emily has started coming back up on tiptoes this past week.  It probably means she's had yet another growth spurt but it also means that the results of the botox are probably wearing off too.  We're going to need to boost the amount of stretching we've been doing with her to hopefully keep the tiptoeing from getting worse before her appointment.
  2. It feels like we're going to be starting all over again since our new doctor hasn't seen Emily's progress this past year.  I'm praying that Dr. Kaitz has made detailed notes on Em's records and noted the amount of motion we've been able to get previously.
  3. We're worried about Dr. Kaitz and are keeping her in our prayers. 
Enough about that... I'm turning it over to God.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28

And, in other news...

...we've been doing a lot of this lately!

Take care and be blessed!
