Well another week has come and gone and once again we made it down and back to Milwaukee. Addison's treatments are going really well. Dr. Drolet was gone and she's the one who normally does the measurements so the one's we received this time aren't all that exact. Dr. Kelly's measurements showed another 1 cm decrease, and Dr. Juern (research fellow) showed the same measurements as last week. The variation in measurements is due to everyone going by different landmarks on her face. That's why they like to have the same person take the measurements week after week. So next week we'll get some substantial feedback on reduction when Dr. Drolet is back in town. Dr. Kelly did say he was very happy with the progress she is making. He feels like Bettie is even squishier this week, like a "bag of worms." We took that as good news.
(Looking at the pictures I can tell she doesn't like when we tilt her head back to get a picture. Every time we do she squawks and the pictures show it. )
I am a little disappointed as it seems like everyone else can tell a difference in Bettie but I can't. I do see a little improvement and I am getting more glimpses of her neck which before was covered by Bettie. But overall I don't see it going down as drastically as other people say it is. I chalk it up to seeing her everyday where others see her once a week or so. I hope soon to see the big change.
