Today our family spent much of the day at Primary Childrens Medical Center. Sadie had her blood work done there at 7:30 in the morning. Later, she had an ultra sound to check her arteries and her regular check-up. We were able to visit with old friends at the hospital and make some new ones. We are very grateful for the kindness we have been shown this past year.
Before we left, Natalie and Rachel helped David haul in 40 bright and colorful fleece blankets. Local cub scouts planned the activity for pack meeting in November. The material was donated; many families came to help with the project. We were able to join with them to help tie the blankets. We had fun visiting, laughing, and being a part of this positive activity. Thanks to the scouts, their families, leaders and all who helped. This was fun for us! The girls were beaming as they carried the blankets in the hospital.
... And now for an awesome announcement. After a crazy mixed up year, Sadie will celebrate her 7th birthday this month! We are so excited that she is still here with us and that we'll be able to celebrate with her here. I saw a doctor today who was able to open her arteries back up in September and felt such gratitude. We are grateful to the family, somewhere, who offered Sadie's new liver to her. Thank you.
