So yeah, we're home. Forgot to post. I knew I was forgetting something. Sorry, everyone! But yes, home. Doing well. Evie is thrilled to be back in her space again (as are the rest of us). She was actually discharged over the weekend, but we had an appointment on Monday, so we hung around town … Continue reading Umm…
First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who sent cards and gifts for our special birthday girl. I am overwhelmed by the sheer number of people who took the time to make her day enjoyable. Friday morning was a bit rough and I thought we'd just go downhill from there, but then the cards … Continue reading Hanging Out with the Birthday Girl
Can you believe it???? It's not exactly the ideal setting for her 4th birthday, but she's still with us and growing and thriving and we're thrilled. Hopefully she's not in too much pain today and we can have a little fun. I had to make another video, of course, but I did it last week … Continue reading Evie is FOUR!!!!

Surgery is scheduled for 11:20 today for about 4 hours. Please pray that we find the source of bleeding, that it doesn't require taking out too much more of her intestines, and that no damage is done during the surgery itself (which is always a risk when you're moving things around in there). It's going … Continue reading Surgery Today
I apologize for not updating more, but we've mostly just been monitoring Evie. Last week however her hemoglobin dropped to 9.0 (from 10.0 a few days before) so we were squeezed in to see hematology locally to decide what to do. Since we want her hemoglobin levels nice and high before surgery, it was decided … Continue reading Upcoming Surgery
