January has been spent in the snow:) Emery made a snowman and snow angels and loves to eat the snow, we have had to limit that since she will try to pick it up from any surface...the parking lot at Walmart...no, a random car...no, freshly fallen in the yard, ok. She is dying to play outside for a long time and being the protective mom I am(just over two weeks until surgery!!) I limit it so she doesn't catch a cold. She is so excited to get her heart fixed, since she is having a harder and harder time keeping up with her brothers and running and jumping which she loves to do. Her surgery is scheduled for February 8th. I will post before then, but would appreciate any and all prayers that could be sent heavenward for her. I am excited to be done dealing with insurance, travel coordination, doctor coordination, monitoring her health, etc. even though, honestly Seattle Children's couldn't do much more to make all of this go more smoothly.
