It's been a while

Sorry it's been so long between post. I apparently have tendinitis in my hand and I just couldn't do anything. I went to the doctor today and he gave me a splint. I thought for sure it was my carpal tunnel again.

A couple of things have happened since my last post. First, we all hope Mimi is feeling better after her emergency surgery. We love you!

We had Sophie's MRI reading today with her doctor. She has two perfectly functioning kidneys! We were excited about that. She also doesn't have a tethered spinal cord or fluid in her spinal cord. Her only major problem is her vertebra are jumbled together. Instead of being in a line, they form little blocks. She is still straight up and down and looks good. The doctor wants to see her back in 9 months to check out she's growing. He said she will have a small trunk, but she looks good. It is so amazing! We when in expecting the absolute worst and got the absolute best. She has been such an amazing blessing to our family.

Maddie wants her ears pierced. I told her that if she goes to bed good at night and wakes up good in the morning that this Saturday we will go and get them pierced. I was going to wait until her birthday, but she kept asking. She told me for her birthday she wanted to have her nails painted, makeup done and ears pierced. She is such a girly girl.

We had snow here this past week. The girls loved it! They got to play in it for a little bit. Maddie wanted to make snow angels, but there wasn't enough snow. It melted the next day, but it was all so much fun while it lasted.

Tomorrow my friend Marye leaves to go and get Joel. Say a prayer for her on her trip. You can follow her journey here.

Hope you feel better. All of my girls want their ears pierced too. Maybe when they are in their teens.
