Saturday we had a beautiful fall day at the Apple Festival in Biglersville Pa.. We had delicious apple pie, apple ice cream ,apple pizza, apple sauce , caramel apples,baked apples...
Teresa and Gemma had a wonderful time experiencing a hay ride and making a scare crow for the first time.
We always have such a nice time at this festival . We starting going to it years ago when the boys were little and now it has become an annual event we share in with the girls too.
Today Teresa had an appointment at Hopkins for an abdominal ultra sound . Her Doctor wanted to make sure she had all of her internal organs. Everything looked good except for her liver , it was VERY enlarged.
Thank you to everyone who has sent me information on Hospitals that might offer hope for Teresa's Heart.
We have emailed several Hospitals Teresa's medical information . On Monday October 18 we will head up to Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), to have a second opinion . CHOP has a Doctor that specializes in Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. After speaking with their support team , we are cautiously optimistic about receiving some kind of good news. We are hoping they will tell us something other than "Take her home ...nothing can be done"
We are waiting to hear back from Boston and the Mayo Clinic.
Life is starting to get back into some sort of normalcy . We still have our good days and not so good days but the bad days are getting easier ...I think.
