Happy Birthday, Vivian!

Vivian - age 3

Vivian is 17 today!

She and I are on our way to pick up Dorothy at camp in North Carolina. We'll be back this weekend.

Thanks for all of your prayers and well wishes. Vivian is doing GREAT! You'd never know she went through major surgery just a week ago; she hasn't taken even an Advil since Friday morning. The swelling on her arm went down after about 24 hours. It's still a horrendous shade of dark purple, but Vivian doesn't seem to notice.

I'll report back after our trip.

Happy birthday to sweet, beautiful Vivian. I can't help but remember where she was last summer...and rejoice that sheis happy and healthy. That must have been so scary for you to send her back into the OR.

I hope Dots had a fabulous time at camp...and that the journey to pick her up went smoothly.

Best wishes,

Happy birthday to your precious girl! How beautiful she is in that photo - don't you love the days of smocked dresses? I'm trying to eek out a few more for my daughter. Safe travels to NC and looking forward to hearing about Dots' time there. :)
