Happy Birthday

My dd is 2 today :hb missK. Poor thing celebrated by meeting her dietician and having a blood draw. Dietician was good, no weight gain but no loss either. We're to keep on with the high calorie diet and managed to hold off the feeding tube for another couple months in hopes we get more gain.

Blood draw was her microarray dna test. It was lousy as usual but the staff were great, she had two techs who were fast and a clown trying to entertain her. She came home with a new puppy with...

I have to vent about it here because believe it or not these people actually care about K and I can't yell at them.
