MRI Results

Well, we met with Dr. Fry on Monday, and just as I predicted, I'm kickin' hiney! You guys didn't have a doubt, did ya? That's right, she was totally impressed with not only the progress I've made since but birth, but also with the progress I've made since just April! She feels that the dermis fat graft (the fat that was transfered from my booty) is really doing it's job. I'm doing so well in fact that I don't have to have any surgery on my eye for at least SIX MONTHS, pretty awesome huh? We're thrilled! At some point I will definitely have to have surgery to correct my eyelid abnormality. The eyelid on my left side curls under, because there was no eye present during development. It's definitely gotten better over the last 22 months, but it's still curled under. So that will require some plastic surgery in the future. Another great thing is that not too long ago we discovered that I do indeed have eyelashes!

So bottom line, MRI looks great and I'm not going under the knife for a while!

I will be seeing my wonderful, fabulous ocularist, Mr. Wenske, next week. He is going to again check on my progress and see what he feels needs to be done next. One of the options he's discussed with us is adding more substance to the outside of my prosthetic, which will hopefully cause the bone to expand outward towards my ear. We shall see what he decides!

How blessed am I??

Psalm 30:4 Sing praise to the LORD, you His godly ones, And give thanks to His holy name.
