Time to get on with life here!

 Time to follow up with doctors. Old ones and now new ones.

Time to get back to pre-school

 And possibly start pre-school!
And perhaps we will have 2 little girls in dance this year!

 As for the stop to see Minnie mouse... I think I can speak for all of us, that I don't think we have ever fit so much fun in to 19 hours! It was absolutely PERFECT!

We only had 2 potty stops on the 7 hour drive and the girls were just delightful the entire trip!

 Minnie couldn't get enough kisses on our Ivy girl and poor little Ivy was in pain! You see Minnie kisses by bopping her pointy nose on you. She was right on Ivy's incision doing her kisses and little Ivy was cringing! We had to run to the bathroom to shed a few tears but after that she was still ready to run full of only adoring words for her favorite mouse> She kept saying, She didn't know! She loves me! She missed me!

 Minnie Mouse is only at the dinner at Goofy's kitchen so we ended up Dining with her instead. And in the morning we went to see the princesses!!

Such a miracle! Who would think just a week ago we weren't even sure if she was going to live and now look at her!

I'm a relatively new reader of your blog but hadn't read in a month or so. I was reminded by God to check things out and am so sorry Ivy had to endure more procedures and surgery! I saw at one point, you mentioned she'd received plasma and,ironically I began donating plasma for the first time in my life just two months ago. For some reason, I feel very ill after donating and it lasts for several hours but it reaffirms how worth it donating is when I think of children like precious Ivy Joy! What a warrior princess she is and what a beautiful family you are blessed with!
