*soon, we will look like this* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

hi all....
I haven't mentioned brookie's surgeries in a really long time...because due to a decision made by Aetna Insurance (trust me....this did NOT make Mama happy...me being Mama...lol!) they chose to stop doing business with the hospital where Brookie get her surgeries done....anywho...soooooooooo we had to cancel her October surgery that was scheduled, wait for open enrollment at work to change insurance companies, then wait for the new year before we could schedule Brookie's surgery......
So, here we are now.  For those of you that don't know what the heck Julie is talking about...lol...Brookie was born with Port Wine Stains and has laser surgery to remove them :)  You will hear stories from me that shows Mama's defensive side, as after her surgery, Brookie looks like this....
And I usually have to go off on more people than not that decides to be ignorant and make crude remarks about the way she looks after surgery......they may try and say these things under their breath....but what they don't realize is...Mama has REALLY good hearing and will always comment back to them when they decide to judge....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....most of U are used to 'smiley' Julie....but don't mess with the way my baby looks...or trust me...U will hear about it from me :) hehehehehehe :):):):):):):):):):)
Soooooooooooo her next surgery, after what feels like a VERY long hiatus (last July to be exact), will be here in just a couple weeks....sooooooooooooo hoping for some thoughts and prayers to make sure she stays healthy during the next couple of weeks, as with not having her last surgery in almost a year, I really don't want to delay it, as we are almost done with them (this one plus probably 2 more!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
No craftiness to share today, have been crazy busy making stuff...just can't share any of it yet *wink* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
