Thanks for sharing--it was so nicely done. Your daughter is beautiful and strong and brave... and has a very loving mother! I wasn't sure if I could watch this because I just have dial-up, -- I tried, got hooked, and spent at least 20 minutes and watched it all. It was time well spent, even though it was done in about 1 second increments "on" then 15-20 seconds "off"... Nice job. I'm sure it's even better without the disjointedness I had to deal with. ;)

You've been through so much--including moving! And it sounds like you have a long road ahead of you still. Will the other surgeries be as invasive? Best wishes, prayers, and hugs to you, your daughter, and the rest of your loving family. :)

Wow! I just had to post to your you tube video. What an amazing little girl you have, she was just smiling through the whole thing and I'm sure it wasn't just for the cameras.

What a special soul she is, just gorgeous and to think what she has to face over the coming years just makes me want to cry for both of you.

Thank heavens we only (hopefully) have to go through this once.

Big cyber hug to you and your precious angel!
