Sunday Afternoons

Recently we've had a few lazy Sunday Afternoons...

Or not so lazy depending on who you are... I made Josiah jump that bike about a hundred times to try to get the perfect photo.

And jump off hay bales. Just for a good angle.

Josiah (aka Spider Man) really slept well that night.

And being the responsible mom I am, I sent someone else under the jumping children.

It was the least I could do.

Mercy's Update

We just got back from the appointments in Cincinnati for Mercy... anyone want to hear what happened?!

- Her heart is "FANTASTIC". That is a direct quote. She is off the lasix, and doesn't have to go back for 6 months.

- Her eye has worsened, but we will be getting a new lense in her glasses this week. She also needs to go back to patching her eye. This time this is harder as she knows more, and is less happy with me each day when I do it.

- We have a surgery date!!! May 27 we will be "de-bulking" the hemangioma and doing a laser surgery while she is sedated already. She will be in the hospital overnight, then released the next morning. There will be another surgery to "even out the skin tone" in the fall.

I am really ready to have this hemangioma, but am a little nervous about the surgery. I hate the thought of my little one hurting, even if I know she will do fine. But in general I am so very hopeful... not only does the tunnel have some light at the end of it, we are able to see the blue sky also!
