Finally Friday....

So I have to say this is the first time since being down here in Texas that I wish we lived closer to home or were home....just for today or the next couple of days. Today my nephew Kieren (my brother and sister in law's son) had surgery to fix his cleft palate. He was born with Pierre Robin Sequence, feel free to read about it at the link posted but basically it's a condition that involves the lower jaw being either small in size or set back from the upper jaw and most infants born with it, but not all, will also have a cleft palate, but none will have a cleft lip. Anyway his jaw has grown enough to perform the surgery and that was this morning......We got word this afternoon that the multiple surgeries went well today and he is now recovering at the hospital. We are so happy for Joe and Victoria, that everything went well but they still have Kieren's recovery ahead of them. And it won't be a walk in the park......and that is why I wish we could be in Seattle...to help them out and be there for them....but we will do what we can from here...Anyway for those of you that know Kieren he is doing well and should be out of the hospital in a few days....Our love and thoughts are with Joe, Victoria and Kieren.....

I can not tell you how happy I am that it is Friday.....I know I work from home and I am a stay at home mom but the weekend is when Shawn is around to help out with the kiddos....and this one could not have come soon enough......maybe I have just been less patient this week with the kids because they have been sick and whiny....aaahhh......With that I am off to enjoy some time quite time with Shawn while the girls are all sleeping.....

my thoughts and prayers are with your little nephew and his family. I can't imagine how hard that must be as a parent to watch your little baby go through surgery...glad to hear he is doing well though, he sounds like one tough little cookie :)

I hope Kieren has a very successful and uneventful recovery! I know how that feels to want so badly to be somewhere else when you are so far away. Anyways, hope you have a great weekend and the girls are feeling better . . .if not just less whiny :)
