Birmingham update

Our appointments went well today and I am so proud of Sophie. She cried horribly during her procedure today but she did not cry when we pulled up to the hospital or walking into the hospital. She was a big girl and I thank you for your prayers. We saw the doctor after lunch and Sophie is so proud to tell everyone that she did not cry at all at the doctor's office!!!!! She is so proud of herself!!

Everything looked fine with her colon and intestines which is a big relief. The surgeons in China did a good job taking care of my princess. Some of her lab results will not be ready until next week. Her iron is still low so we will start iron supplements for a year. Overall, we had a calm day with good news. We will conquer the dentist next!!!!!! At least that will be in Dothan :)

We are in Birmingham tonight.  Sophie goes back to Children's Hospital for another invasive test and blood work.  I have not told her yet that we are going to the doctor tomorrow!!!  She gets so bent out of shape.  I have told her that we are having a pajama party with Nai Nai.  We went to the Gallaria and to the Cheesecake Factory.  She has bounced on the bed and had a great time.  I just hate it for her tomorrow.  She will know exactly where we are going once we turn off onto University Blvd.  My poor baby....pray for her to not be so anxious and afraid.  I appreciate my friends and your concern for Sophie.  She is blessed to be in such a caring community.  Thanks Nai for always being there for me.  I don't know what I would do without you!!!!!
