The new wheels are here

Olivia's Kid Kart will be getting here tomorrow some time and the technician will spend some time teaching me how to do everything. I am SO excited! The chair should really help out at home and the tray will be great for playing. Olivia is also just shy of 21 lbs. which means we will be shopping for a bigger car seat before she hits 22lbs which is the weight limit on the one we have now. Too bad insurance doesn't cover that one too :)

Cardiology appt today was good. We have a follow-up at the beginning of April (right after her first birthday) and then we will officially schedule the surgery.

Brian and I are continually learning patience and endurance. When Olivia started doing better on her new medicine I guess secretly we were hoping she would just take right off and learn a bunch of new things and be able to do them all by herself. Though she is awake more still and always improving, it is at what seems like a very slow pace to us. Today we started to have some difficult conversations about future "what ifs" and changes in our lifestyle, housing choice, and whether or not to start a college fund or another kind of account for her. We can never know what will happen, especially with Olivia, but its good to take inventory of all the possibilities and to prepare the best you can. The Lord has been so kind to us and blessed us immensely.

On a side note, Brian and I are sending out our newsletter for ministry. If you want to get one and don't usually then let me know and we can fix you up.

  3. I'm going to try this for the third time--on another browser. My nephew has so many firewalls on Mozilla that I can't send anything. Just wanted to let you know how glad I am that you have Livi's new chair. It will make things so much easier for both of you. It should also make it a little easier to travel. I have missed seeing you so much. Keep sending the pictures. Your mom fixed up a little digital photo for me so now I can carry a lot of pictures without so much weight. Love, Nannie
