The backyard is full of fun with swings or the dogs:

Compliments all around from the hospital staff, as Hannah did perfectly every step. (Compliments to them too, appreciate the work of people who are there every day to do this.) She went down quickly to the anesthesia, MRI performed. She woke up and was soon alert.

Then the neurologist, which was the fastest most wonderful appointment. “All clear,” the nurse said as she walked in the door. The doc came in too, but it was all repetition and clarification. No tethered cord. Cya!

Thanks for your prayers. God bless you this week.

 

 

Almost 1 year

Hi everyone… photos of the growing girl to be posted soon, Hannah is almost one year!

Today we’d like to ask for prayer. Hoping for good news tomorrow. Hannah undergoes anesthesia at 7:30am. God bring us smooth sailing. An MRI will hopefully rule out a tethered spinal cord.

What does this mean? Well hopefully a good report means the last we’ll ever hear of it. If it’s tethered, there’ll be surgery. However it comes, we will move forward. We are blessed in so many ways, and we ask for God’s blessing on this as well.

Happy Easter

Another month, another pound, another thumbs up from the cardiologist. While we patiently await a miraculous heart-rebuild that will astound the doctors, for now we’ll gladly take the “looking good” status update from her latest echocardiogram.

Eating is changing in a big way. Hannah has done great with mashed foods, and is beginning to feed herself carrots, cucumbers, avocados, bananas and more. Also good at making a giant mess!

New skills, like going out to eat and playing at the pool.

Hannah has started eating mushed-up foods. She’s ambitious enough to try anything!

Some things are good to swallow, some just good to chew on.

Almost permanently attached to Mom. Sometimes motherhood is like the first photo. Other times it’s like the next.
