Straight A's

Bailey got her report card in the mail today and she got straight A's! We're so proud of her. She's always got A's and B's, but she thinks this is the first time since 1st grade that she's received all A's. I think that's incredibly impressive that she accomplished that in the midst of these last 6 months of medical hardships. She's an incredibly brave young lady.

They did an echo today on Bailey. Don't really know any results. I think it was just routine to keep an eye on her heart function. Dr. Darragh, her cardiologist, is going to spend some time with Bailey, when he has a little time himself, and give her a crash course on how to read echos. She is so excited about that! She thinks maybe some day she might be an echo technician. Before this hospital visit, Bailey never wanted to do anything in the medical field - but she's really interested in it now. Who knows what she'll be doing in about 8 years.

Lots of crocheting today. Bailey's helping me make another afghan. And, believe it or not, even Marissa is crocheting! She's only 5 years old and already started her first blanket for herself made out of "baby purple" yarn. (You would love it, Lara!) She's very good at it! I'm impressed.

Marissa had a great time at Aunt Debbie's last night. I heard she got to be really good buddies finally with Sophie (a large, sweet family dog).

Not really much more going on. The new machine is working just fine . . . thank goodness. Maybe we can all "bond" with this one. I've seen Perry (the pigeon) a lot in the last couple days flying around with a girlfriend! (or it might be a boyfriend, depending on whatever Perry is.) I'm still trying to get a picture of him, but he's VERY camera shy.

Hope everyone is dodging all the storms out there tonight. Dr. T would be proud that we're NOT taking his Berlin Heart out in the lightning.

Talk to you tomorrow.
Hugs to everyone out there,

Great job Bailey!!! I am so impressed. You're even an inspiration to all the school kids out there. I'm sure you will never know what impact you've had on people's lives, but I hope some day you get a glimpse. I love you tremendously and we're continuing to pray for a donor.

Love you lots, Aunt Vickie

Congrats on the straight A's! Amazing job! Hang in there you guys!! Do you need any more yarn or anything for your blanket projects? I think I sent over a book of patterns, but if you need something else let me know!

WOW! Strait "A"'s, that's very impressive for anyone, especially for someone with so much other stuff going on! Those teachers at Riley really helped keep you on track, and you're mom, too!

Angie: you'll have to take a picture of Rissy's afghan so I can see it, since it is my favorite color after all...and your's and Bailey's, of course, too.

Love you guys!

Way to go girl!! I know how hard it can be to be in school and the hospital at the same time. Imagine doing it while in high school. It is not fun at all. I hope everything is goin well and I hope that I can visit you again sometime soon. Take care...
