Grandkids x3 Fun Fun Fun

I got to watch my three grandsons on Thursday. I had a blast with them. They are at such wonderful ages: 6, 4, and 10 months old. The baby is walking already at 10 months, and I spent a large portion of the time chasing him around the house. He loves my two dogs, Prancer and Toby and just giggled at the sight of them.

I played pirates and army with the boys. We drew pictures. They had a fun time in the fire truck that we have here. We bowled with a plastic bowling set. Such fun!

It is so nice to feel like a kid around, and that's what happens when the boys are here.

Olivia's Successful Surgery

Olivia's tumor was carefully removed on Friday. As of today, she is back to eating, breathing on her own, no chest tubes, no sedation, etc. She is a tough cookie.
She is now out of the NICU, and back to a regular room. We are thrilled at her progress.

The power of everyone's prayer and good wishes has been awesome.

Olivia's Smile - Olivia Kathryn

This brave 10-month old baby has been through so much after her diagnosis of a Neuroblastoma (cancerous tumor). Yet, she continues to smile for us, play, and be the lovely infant she has always been. When she gets tired of the doctors and nurses she hides under her blankie.

Tomorrow is hopefully her final surgery to remove the remainder of her cancerous tumor. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
