Anything But a Dog! : The Perfect Pet for a Girl with Congenital CMV (Cytomegalovirus)
"I congratulate Lisa on producing a very good piece of work," says Gail J Demmler-Harrison, MD, Director of the Congenital CMV Disease Registry and Research Program, Baylor College of Medicine. Lisa Saunders says "no" to her daughter Jackie's pleas for a dog, fearing it will be too rambunctious around Jackie's disabled little sister Elizabeth. But she does make her a promise she thinks will never come to pass: "If God brings a dog to our door, then you can have it." But is this dog really Heaven-sent? PLUS: The latest news on how to prevent the far-reaching but under-reported effects of congenital CMV, the #1 viral cause of birth defects-more common a cause of disabilities than Down syndrome. It also contains highly useful sections with Resources, Contacts and Support for anyone whose life is touched by CMV.
