Surgery today :)

Hi all :) 

For those that have followed me for awhile, will know that Brookie was born with Port Wine Stains on about 35% of her body -- she has had 17 laser surgeries to help remove them, countless ophthalmologist appointments to make sure her eyes are ok (Port Wine Stains can cause glaucoma and sometimes blindness) --- and today is surgery #18 .... 


Today might be a little harder for Brookie .... she has scar tissue on her chest from previous laser surgeries -- and to remove the scar tissue -- they have to give her a cortisone shot -- thank goodness she will be under while they administer that .... 


I will give an update as soon as I can -- for those that follow me on Facebook -- you will probably see it there first, as we all know it's easier to post from our phones to Facebook than our blogs! LOL! :) 





Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  10. Look at how far Brookie has come, and yet she still has that remarkable glint of happiness and childhood innocence. Truly, while the book cover is changing its color, what is inside still reads as a beautiful, PERFECT young woman destined for great things. Thank you for helping her get this far, Julie, and for protecting her spirit along the way. I pray today's surgery goes well and any discomfort your darling daughter has is minimal. Blessings to you all!

  39. Those trees are amazing - I've never seen such a tree in the Netherlands (but maybe a childrens' hospital here has it too? I hope so, as I can tell it does good to the kids that have to have surery) Hope Brookie is doing better and the children in school will not tease or bully her... Wishing you all a warm and happy weekend!
