Wow! We get to celebrate a very deserving and happy 1st birthday. Long ago over a year ago we were told that she might not make it this far, but she has and she is doing better than anyone can believe. She is the joy of our lives and the happiness that never goes away.

She is doing fabulous. She doesn’t have to be on the vent except at night. She is stating perfectly and she is learning to move. We don’t have another doctor’s appointment until the beginning of August so we are home free for a couple of months. We are celebrating her first birthday next weekend, and her reaffirmation of her baptism.

We can’t thank all of you enough for the prayers that have stormed heaven, but we have another request for prayers. One of my friends from school is pregnant and there was a little blood in the uterus. Pray that all goes well and that the baby is happy and healthy.
