What a Difference a Year Makes

Today marks the official one year anniversary of Jesse's surgery. We spent the evening at one of our favorite haunts, sipping pineapple martinis with oysters on the half shell, reminiscing and reflecting on how different we felt one year ago today.

Later in the evening we went out and bought a new all in one fax/scanner/copier/printer. Isaac tripped over the cord of our previous printer and sent it flying. I tell you, they are fascinating machines when you see them in 437 pieces.

In the years to come, we plan on many more evenings as scintillating as this, free from anxiety and fear over the health of Jesse's heart.

With hearts full of gratitude and love, we bid farewell to this significant milestone. Thanks again to all who have supported us through these experiences.

PS Anna is much better today. No more vomiting, she is nursing well and she even consumed a few solids for breakfast. Hopefully she will quickly gain back the weight she lost and be back to her old self. She slept VERY well last night, which means mommy did too. In the words of our darling nephew Sammy, "Yay Anna!"

I would say that this indicates happiness ALL AROUND at the S house. Congratulations to all of you for making it to this most marvelous milestone.

Perhaps some ballet lessons for clumsy little boys who trip over printer/fax/copy machines??

Um...It'll be a cold day in mid-summer Pheonix before any boy of mine is signed up for ballet! Now, doesn't the NRA have a summer camp for toddlers?

;-D

How on EARTH will the NRA teach him not to trip over printer cords???

Don't make me pull out the "football players who took ballet" card!

Liz, he also told me today that the violin is a "girl" instrument and the boys cannot take Suzuki Violin. It may be time for an intervention.

Cherith Darling...
You need to show your boy a photograph of Joshua Bell who is quite possibly the nicest piece of violin playing eye candy on earth these days....

He'll be more than THRILLED you made him play violin when he turns 14...and all those pretty violin playing girls adore him...

of course, this is where the NRA summer camp might have been necessary....
