Ben's appointment with the craniofacial surgeon and news about Sophia

Ben's doctor was able to get the appointment for the craniofacial surgeon moved up to January 28th (of course the day I go back to work) at 9:30. I really don't know what all to expect from this appointment besides the doctor evaluating him and seeing if he thinks a CT scan or MRI is necessary to confirm or rule out craniosynososis. After this appointment I will update you all.

Although this blog is set up for Ben's story, I'm sure he wouldn't mind sharing due to the amount of people we can reach with this avenue of contact. Last week we took our dog Sophia into the vet because she acted in pain and was yelping when she would walk or get up on furniture. The doctor thinks (he can only speculate without x-trays) that she has intervertabral disc disease, a fancy term for reptured disc. She seems to be in quite a bit of pain when walking or even to go to the bathroom. The vet has her on anti-inflamatories and pain meds for now. We are hopeful that this will go away on its own but he said if it doesn't and she becomes paralyzed, there isn't much they can do. Please keep her in your prayers also.

Damn, when it rains it pours, right?
