Channel 2 is doing a one year follow-up story to our fetal surgery. Matt and I aren't a fan of the coverage, but we believe the news stories had a large influence in our insurance covering the surgery. So we are grateful for them, and we hope the new story shows the joy we have as a family.
I'm nervous about 4 things. 1st, coming across like our life is soooo hard because of two kids with spina bifida. We wouldn't have it any other way, and most days are fine and dandy. 2nd, sounding like fetal surgery is the best option for everyone. Obviously we don't believe this because we chose not to have the fetal surgery with Davey. Sometimes things can come across different when hours of footage is condescend into a two minute story. 3rd, the perception that fetal surgery is a cure for spina bifida. It's not. 4th, I feel uncomfortable with all the comparisons between Maggie and Davey. They are who they are.
Well, let's see how it goes. All I know is that I had a big zit that I saw after the interview. If you want to watch, it will air on Channel 2 at 5 & 6.
Channel 4 is planning on doing a story this Friday or the next.
Here's the latest stories:
