We had our first day at the Williams Syndrome clinic at Children's Hospital. It was a relatively easy day. First up was Audiology. We had been meaning to test Brady's hearing so I am so glad this was part of the clinic. We arrived early, went in early, and left early... plus Brady has no problem with his hearing. Yeah! Even with his little cold, he has been signed off on hearing exams in the future. The audiologist said we could just take part of the ones offered in clinics like this, but no need for any secondary testing.
Next up was his comprehensive medical exam by his geneticist. We had just seen her in September, so this also went fairly quick since she was pretty up-to-date with his info. I gave her a little summary about our Louisville trip, which she was interested to hear about. She immediately squashed Morris' theory about his brain developing abnormally-- "let's wait until we see the MRI", although we both acknowledged that obviously Brady's brain is somewhat abnormal since he has WS. In my opinion, I think she respected the advice and info we got from Morris and Mervis, but didn't want me to put their words in indelible ink.
Our geneticist said all the doctors from this clinic at Children's will be meeting Friday afternoon after all our consults are over to discuss Brady. She will send to me within a week or two a summary of each specialist and information we can use for IEPs, Early Intervention, etc. This is great because Brady's annual EI meeting is the end of February so it will come in time to put some of their suggestions to use.
So far, so good.... I'll let ya'll know how Day 2 goes!
