Summer Update 2012

Our 'happy' summer months have come and gone and we got to enjoy another summer with our daughter Gabrielle.  We ended up spending 12 days in the hospital as she was sick with paraflu and at the same time Jonathan was born.  It was a very exhausting, emotional week but with the help of our families we made it through.  Gabrielle was discharged on heavy amounts of steroids and we spent a very miserable and tiring first week at home.  Fortunately, we were able to go to Canuck Place for some desperately needed family respite time.  It was so great to see our CP family and they all enjoyed cuddles with Jonathan while I slept up in our room.  It was a win win.  Gabrielle was very busy with all the volunteers and every time I saw her she was doing a different activity around the house.  She is so grown up!

Meeting my brother for the first time.  I think I like him:)
