Update on Brookie's Surgery, a get well gift for her and OLW! :):):):):)

Hi all....

Today's surgery went well... Brookie's surgeon who at first thought that she might need 12 laser treatment procedures done..thinks that her face is clearing up well and she might only need 3 or 4 more! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Here are some pics of us hanging out at the hospital before she went in for the procedure! :):):):):):):)

And here is some pics of when we got home today! :):):):):):):)

As you can see, she is a little swollen...that will last until tomorrow and then her "spots" will fade after about 3 weeks! :):):):):):)

And Aunt Suzy and Uncle Richard sent her a GET WELL gift! :):):):):):):):):):) (Hint....U can see it on Brookie's dress in the above pics!) They sent her a Tinkerbell PIN!!!! She LOVESSSSSSSSSSSSS it!!!!! She wore it last night and GOT MAD at ME when I had to take it off for the night!!! LOL.....I had to PROMISE her we were gonna let her wear it today to the hospital to calm her down!!! :):):):):):):) Soooooooooo thanks Aunt Suzy and Uncle Richard...she LOVES IT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next up is my entry for OLW (One Little Word)!!!!!! This time around the word is "REAL" and I knew RIGHT away that I wanted to use a PHOTO of Brookie after a laser surgery for this word! :):):):):)

My title: "This Real Struggle Will Show Your Real Beauty!"

This photo was taken after surgery #2....To me, Daddy and the rest of our friends and family...when we see Brookie this way ... we still see the REAL BEAUTIFUL her....and all of us struggle with the way she is treated by people when they see her in this condition...I personally want to beat these ignorant individuals....but I am good and just let them have it .....well, VERBALLY!! LOL! :):):):) So, that is why this word REAL worked soooooooooo well for me this time around! :):):):):):):):)

Thanks for taking the time to check us out....LOVE TO ALL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)
