Routine Hospital Visit

Last week Micaelyn had her routine ultrasound and blood work to screen for tumors.  She also had a kidney function test since BWS puts her at high risk for other kidney problems beyond just cancer (and unfortunately her orphanage in China was known to have used the melamine-tainted formula which led to kidney problems, and Micaelyn was probably drinking this all the way up until we got her at 3 1/2 years old since they often keep kids on formula longer there).

It was all very routine, but there was one huge difference this time around.

This time Micaelyn had a buddy along with her!  Yes, our little Elianna also has Beckwith-Weidemann Syndrome, just like Micaelyn.

What an adorable little patient she is!
