Thank you for your prayers over the last few days!  Amelia's surgeon said the right leg was more complicated than the left, but he expected that and thought it went very well!  Of course, our prayer continues to be that we will see the success of this surge...

It's that time again...this Friday, March 23, Amelia will be having surgery on her right leg.  It's hard to think that we would have been getting the casts off of her legs around this time and have that behind us; it almost feels like we're back at square o...

A different outcome...
Well, some disappointing news today.  Surgery on Amelia's right leg did not go as planned.  When her surgeon removed the cast from her left leg that she had surgery on 5 weeks ago, he noticed that something wasn't right.  An xray showed the plates in her fe...

Time for round 2....

The next step
Today is a day I have been dreading for a while.  This afternoon, Amelia will start casting on both of her legs.  Not necessarily related to her Loeys Dietz Syndrome, Amelia was born with multiple contractures, at which time they diagnosed her with Arthrogr...

Take Heart!
Pre-meltdown Earlier this month, we saw Amelia's cardiologist and I'm very happy to report that it was a great visit!  She was all smiles when we got there, but when it was time for the EKG, she slowly realized what was going on and when she did, she wanted...

Determined to walk no matter how long it takes!
So often lately, I sit down to write an update and the words just aren't there.  I type then delete, type and delete, and so on.  And then I happened to go to a garage sale and someone recognized Amelia and told me they have been praying for her!  I can't t...
