Infusion # who knows 😂

Yesterday ethen had his eye appointment. His script has changed (gotten worse) but with new glasses they got him to 20/20. However we are screwed if his glasses ever break because he’s way past the eye sight for driving (when it’s time). We will always make sure he has a spare pair w him. HeContinue reading “Infusion # who knows 😂”

So we have had a few people ask for updates from yesterday. It’s tough. It’s emotionally draining. I needed a day to think through it all, discuss it and then find a way to explain it. We left with another new diagnosis and no new treatment options. For the second time in 8 weeks weContinue reading

Tree drive drop off and Drs appointments

Another busy day. Addyson had two Drs appointments today and home hospital teaching. We also decided that today would be the tree drive drop off date and lunch with a friend! First appointment was with one of addysons autonomic dysfunction Drs. She agreed we are on the right path and have already tried all theContinue reading “Tree drive drop off and Drs appointments”

Cardiology, infusion and swim meet

Another busy day. It started with addysons cardiology appointment. We found out her echo was abnormal as her aortic root is enlarged. It cannot shrink back however we need everyone to hope, pray, whatever it is that you believe in. We need addysons aortic root enlightenment to stay under 3.0. Hers is close to theContinue reading “Cardiology, infusion and swim meet”

Surgical follow up

Today we had addysons follow up with her surgeon. I know it’s odd to still have a surgeon one year post her most recent surgery, however he will follow her for years because he’s also the one who will do her next surgery, which will most likely be her pectus excavatum repair. Today we discussedContinue reading “Surgical follow up”

Plan forward

We spoke to addysons motility gi Dr tonight. We have a plan going forward for testing next month when she flares. He also said every xray during a flare has shown a functional ileus. He wants to help us get better control on those. We don’t want to be an ileus mode every month. SoContinue reading “Plan forward”

Last day of wish trip

Today is our last day of addysons wish trip, we head home tomorrow. It has been an amazing trip with lots of memories.. Below are a few highlights. Addyson goes through so much medically so to have a week to make these memories and focus on all the fun things has been amazing.

Pediatrician check up

Why does every one of addysons doctors say “she’s one that sticks with me and makes me think”? They all also say man, she’s still full of spunk even years later. Let her keep that sass it makes her the fighter that she is. Today we saw her pediatrican and we talked through everything. WeContinue reading “Pediatrician check up”

1st appt this set

First appointment of this set went as expected. Rheumatology changed dosage on addysons fever meds since in 6 months she’s had 6 fever episodes. He is hopeful this bump up will stop the flares. If it doesn’t work then we are to call and discuss another option. Tomorrow is the big day- aadp clinic. HoursContinue reading “1st appt this set”

Whole Genome Sequencing

Addysons Whole Genome Sequencing came back after some mix ups. Her blood work from today also came back abnormal In her genome: They refound her MEFV Gene and her CHRNB2 Gene. They also found another gene: UGT1A1 *1/*28. The ugt1a1 gene means that she is a Intermediate Metabolizer. We were told that this means thatContinue reading “Whole Genome Sequencing”
