Angel's first full day in Dallas

(Picture 1: Pol, Angel, & Tracy; Picture 2: Pol and Angel in the lobby of the Medical City Hospital)
Angel and Pol are still adjusting to the time change. I picked them up at 12:45 and we went to lunch at the famous Dickey's Barbecue (very popular with the Apert families who go to Medical City) right across the street from the hospital. Pol had his first real Texas BBQ meal of beef brisket! I think he liked it. Angel didn't want to sit in the high chair. She wanted to sit on Daddy's lap! After lunch we went to the hospital to meet Tracy Romano of Medical City who was instrumental in clearing all of Angel's surgery free of charge. We also met Marna and Sue at World Craniofacial Foundation. They gave a beautiful alphabet and animal quilt to Angel. Angel had some pictures taken and then we took a little tour of the hospital to show Pol where to get something to eat, where Angel's recovery room was going to be, and where the computers are so that he can write his family and friends from the hospital. It was good for them to see the hospital, but we were all very tired at the end of the day. Tomorrow is a day for rest for everyone and then Wednesday is a very long pre-op day with tests and xrays and pictures and measurements and appointments.

We also had WONDERFUL news. Dr. Stager, the Dallas opthalmologist who specializes in kids with craniofacial disorders has agreed to see Angel free of charge. Thank you Dr. Stager!!! More on that later. We will make appointments for Angel to see him and he will determine what surgeries need to be done on her eye muscles so that she has better control of her eyes! We are so happy about this!

More news on Wednesday.

Goal for helpbabyangel -
Paying Angel's diapers, bandages, formula, etc, and
to bring Angeleah's mom, Eva,
to U.S. for the surgeries (This doesn't include money donated earlier that was
used for Angel's and Pol's Visas and for their travel
to Manilla to get the VISAS. )
