Options. This business is all about having options in your life. To have the life you want. To be who you want. To have the FREEDOM to make those choices. What are your options? 🤔🤔 Dr. Melissa Kuo King shared the following at the beginning of the new year. “So many hats we wear. Mom. Wife. Sister. Daughter. Doctor. Leader. Follower. Procrastinator. Cheerleader. Friend. Counselor. Overthinker. Hanging up one of my hats for a season.... yes, I left my medical practice officially as of today.
Definitely not easy for me. Medicine is a calling I believe, and I devoted a large portion of my life to training in this profession, helping and serving others, a lifelong learner in studies, people and the human physical condition, specifically as it pertains to my specialty in infectious diseases. I have gone through #allthefeels for lack of a better term, back and forth. It is something Bryan and I have prayed and talked over for hours, days, weeks, months. I’m not sure exactly what it will look like or how long, and that’s one of the hard parts #typeA#controlfreakrighthere .
Maybe I’ll be back in 10 years or 10 months in a different capacity. But what I do know is that I’ve been blessed with 3 amazing, beautiful people who call me “mommy,” one incredible person who calls me “wife” and an unlikely opportunity to impact more people than I ever dreamed possible alongside like-minded and like-hearted individuals right now, so I will be faithful in where I’m being called in the moment.
Today. Right now. Knowing who holds the future.
Happy Sunday! Don't forget there's an all-new episode of The Good Doctor TOMORROW! #Episode13 is titled #SevenReasons !
Things are getting tense between Shaun and Melendez... Synopsis:
Dr. Murphy suspects his patient is lying about the reason for her injury and makes a controversial assumption about her motives; Dr. Melendez's personal life could be affecting his work.
Meet this brave little guy, baby Jaxon, also known as Jaxon Strong for beating all odds and spending his first 3 weeks of life at the hospital! 💪 He was born without most his skull, diagnosed with microhydranencephaly, a mixture of 2 separate condition, microcephaly and hydrancephaly. This condition is a type of brain malformation that causes sever intellectual disability and a deformed skull. 😳
A lot of his brain is there, it’s just extremely small. It’s about one-fifth the size of what it should be. The part that’s most malformed is in the cerebellum. The doctors told said his brain was growing fine during the pregnancy and then all of a sudden, it just stopped, at around 8-10 weeks.
His parents want people to know that baby Jaxon is not on life support, he’s not struggling and he’s not uncomfortable. He’s actually learning, thriving and getting a little better each and every day!
Microcephaly is a medical condition in which the brain does not develop properly resulting in a smaller than normal head. Microcephaly may be present at birth or it may develop in the first few years of life. Often people with the disorder have an intellectual disability, poor motor function, poor speech, abnormal facial features, seizures, and dwarfism. Hydranencephaly is a congenital condition in which the brain's cerebral hemispheres are absent to varying degrees and the resulting empty cranial cavity is filled with cerebrospinal fluid. The prognosis for a child born with hydranencephaly is presented as very poor: death in utero, within weeks, or no longer than a year. This is why baby Jaxon Strong is a living miracle and a blessing to his brave parents!
If you or a loved one are experiencing these conditions, please ask us and contact your primary healthcare physician to prevent any further complications. Stay strong and stay brave baby Jaxon! 🤓
