Best Christmas Gift EVER!

Happy Holidays!

Just a quick note to wish all those that celebrate,

Our family received the best Christmas gift ever!
After a week in the hospital for surgery
for a midgut malroation, our little one 
made it home yesterday!

During her stay, we had so much love and support.
I can not thank our family and friends enough.

Thank you. 
There truly are not enough thank yous.


Here are a few photos from the week...
Even though it was a tough week,
there were several things to brighten her days.

Chloe (bear) was by her side the entire time, 
from the surgery to recovery.

Her big sister was so comforting...
always holding her hand.

So many family, friends and classmates 
sent love and well wishes.

Elf on the Shelf followed her all 
the way to the hospital!

She wasn't allowed to drink anything for 
over 4 days, or eat anything for 6 days.  
She was allowed to have a few licks from 
hard candy and lollipops, so we made her
a Dum Dums Christmas tree for her room.  
We found Elf of the Shelf sitting on top the 
second night of her stay, holding a lollipop.

First trip out of bed to see a 
tree down the hall.

Santa visited her via Skype and 
left her that cute Elf doll on the right!

This is Annabelle, the sweetest  
4 year old Bernese Mountain dog.
She is one of the four therapy dogs that
came to visit during her stay.
She was smiling ear to ear when 
the dogs came to visit!  
Such a wonderful program.

Her first time walking unassisted after surgery...
she did such a great job!

A portable Wii system was brought to her room 
her last night when she was feeling better.

When she arrived home,  
our wonderful friends had a huge banner waiting for her!


I don't think I'll have many new 
posts until after New Year's.
I'll be spending the next week getting 
our little one back to 100%.   I am so
looking forward to a wonderful 2013 for
Sweet Little Bluebird!

Thank you so much for all of 
the visits and sweet comments,
 2012 was awesome!

I can't wait to see what's ahead for 2013!

 Cheers to all!
Happy Holidays!
