Thank your for the birthday wishes. Katie had a great day. Unfortunately when we went to the physical therapist she has fluid under her knee, a boy pushed her at school and her modified AFO banged her and caused the fluid so apparently we need to come up with a new modification or see if it is time to do the amputation. PT likes some of the modifications made to accomodate her leg length discrepancy, but she does not like the piece in front because when it slides up it is banging her knee cap.
On a positive note Katie passed her karate test and got her next belt.

have a great tuesday

My Poor Baby has been running a fever for the past few days and was complaining her heart hurt. Talk about something a parent never wants to hear from their child with repaired heart...Luckily Doc said she was probably feeling it beat faster due to the fever. She will be fine but has her 1st ear infection.
The girls are so excited we received an early christmas gift...luggage so we can start to organize. I can't believe how fast it is coming

Breakfast with Santa at A wish come true. Everyone is one the mend, and the girls really enjoyed the chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream and hot cocoa. The balloon guy was amazing

Hi! I'm so glad to hear Katie got a wish! Your girls are just adorable! Our girls have a bit in common... I have a Catherine with a heart defect, too! She's 7, and a peanut as well. We went on our wish trip in May. It was amazing, and I know you guys will have a wonderful time on your trip. I'll follow along as you plan.

Katie is cleaning house this December....She lost another tooth this morning. Actually her sister knocked it out by climbing in bed with her....I thought she was having a terrible nightmare the way she was screaming but she couldn;t find her tooth. That is three in two weeks, the tooth fairy is getting a second job to keep up with her. Off to make chocolate covered pretzel rods and more wrapping

I think I agree that I could possibly have your Catherine's counterpart. I read some of your pre trip and some of their other traits are eerily similar...except Katie is delayed in reading and math (she is very bright but it takes forever to catch on to something but when she does she is off and running) My Katie had to have surgery also to correct crossing in her left eye and she wears glasses to help with this correction. She is the happiest and most well adjusted child, she is always smiling and laughing (belly laugh). Katie's heart fortunately is still stable... her defects were not all that uncommon ASD VSD but the coarctation of the aorta had not been repaired on a 1 lb baby. yeah for unique Little (my katie weights 30 lb)
Kathryn's (Catherine's)

Did you have any difficulty with getting on rides or is your Catherine tall?

Your girls are so cute. I love the thumbs up with Santa!! How cute!! Congrats on getting a wish. We are going in February and can share your excitement.

My daughter, Mallory was also born with heart defects. She was full term, but since has had issues growing as well. Although she will be 6 in 10 days, she is the size of a 3 year old. So I guess we will need car seat for the plane as well. Sometimes it feels like she will always need a car seat.

Happy Planning! I look forward to hearing more!!

Thanks for stopping by...I know how you feel about the carseat alot of katie's friends are big enough to not need one. We actually had to go by a carseat because ours are all boosters or booster with removable backs. DH is so excited to carry it through the airport. We are going to ortho tomorrow since katie is uneven due to leg discrepancy to see if we can make her more even and 40" tall so she can go on rides. Hopefully her modified afo can be adjusted.

Someday I will get around to finishing that TR! I didn't even get to our day at DHS, which was really the most fun, most exciting, and worst day all wrapped up in one!

Anyway, Catherine rode everything she wanted to ride. She was somewhere between 40 and 44 inches, so if she were a real daredevil there would have been rides she couldn't do. But, she's not. She and my DD John were about the same size, so it was never a big deal. I think the biggest ride she rode was Thunder Mountain Railroad.

I'll be following along with you plans!! Merry Christmas!
