Mary Kathleen Update

She was seen by our family dermatologist today about her birthmark. This is about the third or fourth time she's been seen for it, but this past summer we were told we were just going to "watch" it and check again when she's about five. Now it has started bleeding and when Greg took her in today, the doctor feels that it is getting bumpier (almost wartlike) and while it isn't an "emergency situation", it is something that she wants a pediatric dermatologist to look at. She referred us to Dr. Susan Bayliss at Children's. When Greg called to make an appointment, they first said that the first opening was mid-January. Greg told her that she'd be getting Mary Kathleen's records and they said they had a cancellation for this Thursday. Dr. Sanchez said that Dr. Bayliss may want to biopsy the spot or remove it altogether. I guess we'll find out Thursday. That will make five doctor appointments in one week between her and her brother!! Ugh.

Stay tuned. . .

Dear Erin, Greg, Mary Kathleen and Connie--

Please count on my continued prayers. You are blessed by the Lord, and his strength is so manifest. But I will keep praying for all. Love, Sr Josephine
