Well Carol's birthday went great. Thanks to all for all the birthday well wishes, cards, gifts, and everything. It REALLY made it a special day for Carol. I will post some pictures, I have a couple. I am sure I will be getting more to post from others, I only had a chance to take a couple of my own. I organized a birthday dinner for Carol in Seattle at one her favorite restaurants, wild ginger. Most of my family was there, and Carol's highschool posse came to surprise her.
As far as Carol's recovery, she made a personal goal on her birthday. She had set a goal last year of walking into this restaurant in heels, which she did. On a more serious note, her right leg bone spur (the one on the left was removed last year) is beginning to give her more and more trouble, and she is thinking of having the surgery before the end of the year. She will see the orthoped surgeon this week to go over options and available times. It's not a have to, but she is getting geared up in her head to have it done. She will be off her feet again for 3 months like the last one. There are a number of reasons for doing it sooner than later. No real changed other than that. Safiya is learning lots of new words, chloe is still not potty trained, and I think Safiya will be walking any day. It is so interesting how two kids from the same parents and family can be so different.
Thanks again everyone!!
