this is a picture i will cherish forever❤️ this is the first time we’ve gotten to see all 3 doctors at the same time (2 of whom we haven’t seen since Clem was born/had surgery), and it was an unbelievably special and precious moment for me to see them all with Clem 5 years later (starting with her 18 week u/s) and be able to thank them and tell them how important they’ve been in our lives 💕
Far-left: Chief of Maternal Fetal Medicine, this is the high-risk neonatologist who gave me the news at Clem’s 18 week anatomical ultrasound that she had 10% chance of surviving the weekend, performed the amniocentesis, and monitored my pregnancy along with her team - she’s such an intelligent, compassionate, poised woman who i admire and respect so much and am thankful to have had her by my side, holding my hand, celebrating, having my back and being there the whole way.
Left: Clem’s pediatric cardiologist who performed her first fetal echocardiogram, gave us such hope and optimism and has been a wonderful friend and advocate to Clem. We adore her and are so thankful for all she has done for us and look forward to watching their relationship grow in the years to come.
Far-right: Chief of Pediatric Cardio-Thoracic Surgery - her performed Clem’s heart surgery at 2 months old. We are so forever thankful for his skilled hand giving Clem a new beginning - the start of her real babyhood experience, quality of life and a bright future.
