Some Good News!

Rowan was released from the endocrinologist today! We’ve been going to the endocrinologist every 3 or 4 months to keep track of Rowan’s Vitamin D and Calcium levels. DiGeorge kids often have parathyroid deficiency which can lead to hypocalcemia. Rowan is NOT one of those kids. Her calcium levels and her parathyroid hormone levels have always been fine but her Vitamin D has been low. But with a low level supplement everything is fine, so the doctor said he didn’t need to see her anymore. WOOHOO! One doctor down, one to go (immunology, cardiology will be around for a while yet) and I’m so excited! I’m happy that my girl is getting healthier and healthier!
