Mr. A.H. and I are having a little quiet time at the children's hospital.

We're in the waiting room while little Meemers is in surgery. This is her 5th surgery. She is 5 months old.

The last 4 surgeries have gone well. We're grateful she has such a wonderful surgeon.

Our sweet little baby girl.

It's easy now to forget that when she was born she was hooked up to all kinds of things to make sure she was still breathing well and getting enough oxygen. We had to get up every 3 hours and suck her nose out with a machine, and then change the lead on her pulse oximiter. We didn't get a lot of sleep.

I still listen for her breathing at night. And I am grateful for every moment we have with her. She is so precious. And so funny! She started playing with the anaesthesiologist's face when he picked her up to take her back.

Sweet little Meemers.

I'm glad to hear that she's doing well all in all, but it breaks my heart that she has to go through so many surgeries. You're an amazing mom.

Go, Meemers! Hope it went really well!

Goodness! I haven't been over here to your blog for a while. Oh how I remember the wires and monitors everywhere. We were SO excited when she was finally "cordless!" :) I hope things are going well... you are in our prayers. Heavenly Father sent her to you and only you... you can do it!

Much love,
