Childrens Hospital of Michigan and Guillianna
Dear Mom and Dad, it’s me… your little Gugu Bee…
Today was a big day, Tricare – Northern Region finally approved me to see the pediatric cardiology specialist! I think it had a little bit to do with the fact that Nana, had a “moment” with them. She asked for the first and last name so that she could document whom exactly was denying a 12 week old with situs inversus, (or as I like to call it, “modified princess parts” ) an evaluation of her princess parts… seems after hearing Nana’s perspective, the nurse manager agreed I should be seen, and did so in record time… the very next day… which was TODAY… a referral appeared. The pediatricians office manager also went to task for me, and after two weeks and more phone calls than I can surely count, the consult was mine to be had.
So we went to Children’s hospital and spent our day getting a comprehesive evaluation. My new cardiologist was VERY PLEASED with all my princess parts, and in particular my princess heart. Strong, and other than being placed on the RIGHT side… no concerns at this time. GREAT NEWS… and let me tell you …. I WAS A CHAMP… not a single tear was shed, and yes I was quite impressive with the extreme level of cuteness I displayed to all of the staff. Smiles for everyone.
Nana’s moment has passed… and she is now very happy to know I am doing well. My princess heart and princess parts are all part of making me extra special just like you have known about me from the beginning. Uncle Nick was right for you not to worry! I know this will be a shocker, but Nana did in fact get a photo… WITH HER PHONE NO LESS…
I was awesome…. you would be so very proud. Nana and I sat in a room full of patients. We saw patients who had visible scars from surgery on their hearts, and all kinds of serious conditions. It was an emotional day, but WE HAD THE BEST NEWS WE COULD HAVE EVER HOPED FOR TODAY… and I wanted to share it with you and all my loyal readers. Yes, my princess parts are strong and working well, and I am as special and unique as any princess should be… and today I weighed in at 11.bs 12oz. ! I am growing and doing great.
Aunt Pam, who is officially the THURSDAY captain of TEAM GUILLIANNA, still came out to visit me, and she held me and cuddled me, and made resting in her arms so easy. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR MY THURSDAY VISIT…. and I can’t wait to see you again. I was pretty exhausted tonight but the laughter and happiness makes being away from mom and dad a bit easier. You both would be so glad to know how much love is around me all the time.
So Mom and Dad, we almost have another week gone bye, and are just a bit closer than before to being together… remember, I love you both very much, as always, Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
