|have car and suitcase, will travel...|
We're currently five days into our eleven day medical trip in Missouri. Grateful for the prayers, love and support of many of you I thought it's time to update you on how things are going in Lucy's current medical journey......

just us and our luggage on this run
On November 4th we flew from BWI airport to St. Louis, MO. Lucy continues to be a great traveler (thanks to our friend, Benadryl who helps with car/plane sickness). Having a disabled child allows our little family of three to "preboard" onto a plane which is incredibly helpful!
|Guess who always claims "window seat?"|
|Welcome to our pad!|
|Yup, we took the twin beds and jammed them together|
so we could snuggle!

|Dr. Matthew Dobbs is such a caring and compassionate specialist|
I was anxious to hear what Dr. Dobbs thought in reference to the position of her talus bone (in other words how close to the horizontal position it should be in from the series of castings that had been done with Dr. VanBosse in Philadelphia.) We received very good news!! Dr. Dobbs would re-cast Lucy only one more time before surgery instead of the twice that was scheduled! Wohoo! Miss Lucy chose orange as her pre-surgery cast color.
Not far from the St. Louis Children's hospital is the FREE St. Louis zoo. It was a beautiful sunny day and we decided to pay a visit to our animal friends there...... part two to follow....
