After a quick lunch break, Abigail saw the plastic surgeon and then fell asleep in Larry's arms for our sessions with the psychologist and the geneticist.
Lar and I were not initially blown away by the team: they weren't bad or anything, but from what we have experienced, audiologists and speech therapists are a special breed of patient, saintly people and must be like that everywhere. ENTs are all business, which is their job, so that is good too. So given the horrible traffic (it was 1.5 hours to get there and 2.5 hours to get home!!) we were thinking of switching to the Richmond clinic next year. Then we met Dr. Oh (plastic surgeon) and the British psychologist, who sounds like a genius just because of her accent and we were hooked on the DC clinic.

I also know that I am lucky beyond belief that this amazing, intelligent, funny, clever, beautiful, creative little individual is my daughter. Not a day goes by that I don't think about that. And when I am in a children's hospital all day, and I see the Huge problems that so many kids are facing, I am scared out of my mind at my own good luck and fortune. I can't even wrap my mind around it sometimes!
