While we were there, I got the call from CHOP we've been waiting for! We'll be going up to Philadelphia on November 17th and 18th for our appointments with the transplant team and the gastroenterologist. Over the past few days I've been in touch with the social workers and it looks like we'll be staying the Gift of Life Family House which is a brand new beautiful facility that houses patients and their families while in Philadelphia for transplant-related appointments at all of the city hospitals. The House is a program by the Gift of Life Donor Program. You can read more about the program at http://www.giftoflifefamilyhouse.org/.
In other big news, Stephen is now sitting up by himself! He says upright for extended periods of time now without falling over and is able to correct himself when he starts to wobble. It's a big milestone for him considering all of the abdominal surgery he's had. Here's a picture I snapped today sitting up on the floor playing with one of his new favorite toys. You can also tell that someone is working on a tooth!!
My Dad and I also took Stephen to the park while at home and I think I was able to snap some the cutest pictures of Stephen yet! I probably say that every time, but these ones are really really cute!!!
