Meeting Dr. Keller

Dan and I took Sophia to meet Dr. Keller last week. I never did send her a thank you note, as I had intended to throughout the pregnancy. I always said I'd do it "after my next dr appt." But then that next appt happened and I never felt confident that I'd make it to the next appt...so the thank you note never got sent.

Yes, I had to fight the tears as we walked in to the office. There was one man in the waiting room and I hoped the sight of the carseat and our smiles didn't bother him. I had hoped they had scheduled at a time when they weren't seeing patients, but I guess it couldn't be avoided. Seeing Dr. Keller was just bittersweet. She gave both of hugs and the first thing she said was "I'm sorry Stacey but she looks exactly like Dan:)" We spent almost an hour there, and met with all the staff and techs. They all remembered me, not sure if that's good or bad. Dr. Keller did ask if we were planning on returning to the clinic. For now, I'll plead the 5th on our response.

She took a picture of the 3 of us for the wall in her office. She said on bad days she looks at her wall to remember why she does what she does. And of course we took our picture with her!

In all, we had a nice visit. It was the closure I needed, that I'd been trying for for months but was never able to get.

Here we are last night-6 weeks!!

of all your posts, sweet words, heartache, pain and love - this one has me in tears. All over my keyboard, I love every bit of it. It's so sweet that you made it in to see them all again. I love it!

So glad you got to go back and see Dr. K! :-) I haven't made it back to visit yet, but I did send a long thank you note to her and the staff. So, I hope she knows how much she is appreciated.
