So, it's been a while! VeeGee is scheduled to have surgery (pharyngeal flap/velopharyngeal sphincteroplasty) on April 22nd to correct airflow during speech. Her surgeon (the amazing Dr. Kevin Kelly) has ordered type-specific blood. VeeGee's blood type is O-negative. K, fortunately, can give because that's his type, but I can't. :( If you are interested in helping us out with a donation, please let me know.
I'm VeeGee's Mommy, K's wife, an academic, a writer, a teacher, a gardener, a chef, blah blah blah. I write about my journey as an adoptive mom of a kiddo with Pierre Robin Sequence, and other stuff like politics, race, religion - you know, that stuff we're not supposed to talk about!
