I get asked a lot about who’s my doctor, where did I go for my lengthenings, what was the experience like, and so on…You can check that out by reading my patient story on the International Center for Limb Lengthening website or down below 🙂
Last week I was in Baltimore (surprise, surprise) for another appointment with Dr. Standard but this time it was more planned than it was scheduled – if that makes sense…it does to me. Recently, I was approached by a filmmaker to be part of an upcoming documentary that will share my experience with achondroplasia and limb lengthening. It was great being able to work with the film crew and Dr. Standard, as well as comparing both of our viewpoints and reflecting on past surgeries and appointments. There aren’t many more details that I can provide at this time but stay tuned for further updates when the time comes. For my most recent follow-up with Dr. Standard click here.

I’m one of those that have different types of showers. I have my ‘wash hair, face, and body’ shower, ‘wash hair, exfoliate, and moisturize’ shower, and then the shower where I go all out – wash hair, exfoliate, cleanse, shave, moisturize, etc. Complimentary of Influenster, I have been able to start the new year early by reviving my shower routine with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner. With all of the dyes, bleach, and heat that I put in my hair, I need to take better care of it (I have been coloring my hair since fifth grade!!)
