A Trip to the Doctors

Addison, my bestfriend Jodica and I made the trip to Edmonton, so we could see Addy's liver specialist last week. First I have to say we had a wonderful time playing and shopping.:) The weather was great and topping that all off we got to meet one of my favorite bloggy friends, Paige for the first time! It was so wonderful to meet in person as Paige has been such a support through Addison's adoption and once she came home. It was so neat to see the girls play alongside each other. Paige has two lovely girls in Lilah and Zoe. Above is a picture of 3 of our sweet girlies.

On to the big news......Addison's appointment went really really well!!!!! Yay! Her doctor is amazing! He did a scan of Addison's liver to look at the health. He believes that her body is possibly fighting off this virus and just wants to watch her for the next little bit. We will head for an ultrasound at home and some more bloodwork, and then we will see Dr. Yap every 6 months for now, unless things change. He didn't believe she was a good candidate for some experimental treatments that are going on, because these treatments are aggressive and haven't really shown a marked improvement in the patients at this point. Dr Yap was wonderful with Addy and took the time to answer my questions. We never once felt rushed or like he wasn't listening to my concerns for our sweet girl. He is hands down one of the best doctors we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

I have to say that I am now sighing a huge sigh of relief!!! Praise the Lord! I thank all of you who have surrounded us with love, prayers and support. We appreciate each any every one of you, those that we know well and those that we know through our blog. We will keep everyone updated on each of Addison's visits. However our greatest prayer would be that her little body would fight this virus and clear it from her system without out any medical intervention....a very slim chance, however our family worships a God who still performs miracles daily. So I will trust in Him and His will for our sweet little Addy!


  1. That is amazing news and I am so glad that he is a doctor that you have complete trust in, what an answer to prayer!

    I am so glad we got to meet as well, and knowing that you will be here every six months, gives us (and the girls) a chance to get together more often!

  2. Kim!!!!! I can't tell you what a relief this is - we have been praying for you and thinking of Addie so much! - oh my gosh - how awesome is our God.

    Jackie, Paul and Jazlin

  3. So relieved! I am glad you have a wonderful doctor to help navigate through these medical procedures.

  4. So happy you got to meet up with Paige and her two girls. :)

    And wonderful news about Addy. God is good. And yes, He does perform miracles daily.


  5. How wonderful to have a doctor who listens!!! So glad you can hold off on treatment. And if she does need it down the road.....I've been there and it's very do-able!

    Best of luck to you and your sweet girl!
