Mackenzie was born on November 16, 2005, via c-section.  The doctors knew there was a problem immediately, and by the time I was out of recovery they diagnosed her with Apert syndrome.  we were shocked, but I was so happy she was here.  Mackenzie has done amazing so far.  At birth, she was feeding and breathing on her own.  She never spent any time in the NICU and was released after only three days.  Mackenzie weighed an amazing 9 lb 5 oz. and was 22 1/2 inches long.  Her first head surgery is March 7 2006 at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.  So far we have discovered that Mackenzie has a duplicate kidney, fluid on one kidney, a heart murmur, constant watering of the eyes, slight sleep apnea and ingrown nail problems, along with the usual syndactyly and craniosynostosis.  We will keep you posted.

Thanks so much,
