Valerie is doing well at home in Cozumel
I accompanied Valerie and Alejandra on their return trip home to Cozumel. They were greeted by friends & family at the airport. Valerie´s little sister Veronica was happy to see her big sister and her mom return home. Rosy Pirez of Cozumel had helped the family prepare the home for arrival - including purchasing a new bed, fans & a window AC unit to make Valerie comfortable and to assure that the feeding pumps and supplement are kept at a cooler temperature. A few days after their arrival home, I visited the family to assure that they had everything they needed and that all was going well. We have since had a follow up appointment with a local pediatrician in Playa. She was extremely thorough with Valerie and gave Alejandra recommendations for Valerie´s continued care. Valerie is now over 19 lbs. and looks better and better each time I see her. I will be visiting the family at their home next week & will keep everyone posted!
