|Love, love, love that they all have diabetes. And check their blood together!!|
|Ok, so no blood sugar checks..but they definitely have something in common!|
|My *baby* in midair off the high dive! (I think I was like 12 before I went off it!)|
|Sweet, sweet girls hanging with the little dude. He couldn't get enough of that slide!|
|So thankful they could join us..it was awesome. Really.|
On another friend note. Mary Claire's close friend, Alyssa, had surgery on Friday. It was a huge, long surgery removing her pancreas, spleen, appendix, gall bladder and duodenum. See? Huge. You can visit her caringbridge page by clicking on her name, and leave her a message! : ) She loves reading the notes left. Even by people she doesn't know! : ) Bless her heart, it was a big deal. She's up and moving by little bits today (a few steps at a time), and has had a few of her wires removed. Baby steps.
The other thing? She had 228,152 islets transplanted from her pancreas (which was causing her trouble..chronic pancreatitis) to her LiVER!! Yes, you
She won't be back in town for school to start, and we'll miss her. Mary Claire is really counting on being in the same pod as her for the big jump to middle school...in a month!
|We prayed before lunch. Yes, she heard me. Obviously. But we did pray!! She loves that girl.|
