A Quick Update

It is only Friday but this week seems to go on forever.

Hanna had surgery very early Wednesday morning. There was nothing routine about it at all, in fact some physical anomalies were found so her tissue has been sent to Rochester for further study. The most likely source of the problems is her FASD ( yeah, that craziness affects everything about them). A physician ( who has been along for the entire three year journey) and I were both is tears. We were both a little shocked to realize that we had accomplished what we had set out to three years ago and we were both so glad that when this is all over Hanna will be healthier and I am sure happier too. She will still be vulnerable and make poor choices, but at least we will not be raising any kids that she can not take care of.

She is really grumpy and likely will be for a while because she does not realize yet that she is going to totally be chilling for at least two weeks. She demonstrated the need for this at the hospital this morning before we left, oh yeah the joys of special needs kids!!

I am glad to be home where someone else will be on Hanna watch tonight while I SLEEP.


  1. Praying for Hanna's speedy and uncomplicated recovery, and for some sleep for you, Cyndi!

  2. I am glad you get to sleep tonight and Hannah came through the surgery. {{{Hugs}}}
