Since February is Heart Month, I thought now would be a great time for an update on Katelyn 🙂
It’s been a little while since I have taken the time to write, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas with our miracle girl. And we will be planning her birthday party soon, she is growing so fast! Its hard to believe that in 2 short months Kate will be turning two. Its strange because certain parts of the past two years seemed to take an eternity while we were living them, but when I look back, time has just flown by.
She is doing well, despite this crazy flu season. We stay home A LOT, safe in our little “bubble.” She doesn’t seem to mind, seeing as she gets to watch lots of Mickey Mouse, play with her toys and run around outside in the backyard all day long.
Even with the precautions we have taken, she has managed to get a couple stomach bugs over the last month. One hit her so hard, it caused her hemaglobin to drop and she needed a blood transfusion. We had two hospital stays and an unplanned trip to Houston all within a month; January was very busy!! I am happy to report, though, that February has been smooth sailing so far and we are very thankful!
We have her next biopsy and checkup in Houston set for April. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers for good results! These trips (especially the biopsies) are very nerve wracking and stressful for Andrew and me. Its a lot of anxiety beforehand, so far we have been very lucky and have gotten lots of good news, but the fear is still there. We appreciate your continued prayers for Katelyn and our family.
