    I will download my camera one day and show you my flowers.
    It is supposed to do it automatically by just setting it near my computer, but even the techno kid can't make it do it, so I think they just lied.
    It was a selling point that does not actually exist, but we are too embarrassed by our stupidity to call them on it.

    Anyway, one day! I promise.

    Blooie, she is a beautiful girl! Going to be a heartbreaker when she's older.

    Saw the Dr yesterday. Basically got my prednisone decreased a touch...yeah!!...and that was about it. Things are going well and it's just kind of hanging out. Dr doesn't need to see me for a week....my thought was I could run home and they'd never know lol! I know, can't happen, but it was a nice fleeting fantasy.

    Any decrease in Predinsone - even a minute amount - is a good thing! And if the doctor doesn't need to see you for a week, can we infer that the UTI is clearing up finally? You know doggone good and well that as much as we'd love to see you go home, if you even TRY sneaking out of there your faithful watchdogs on Team Rachel would hog-tie you and take you back! Outta love, of course, outta love!

    Thanks for all the kind words about Kendra, Rachel and Team. We are pretty doggone proud of her. She's learning to use a walker (not very well yet, but we're getting there!) and she delights everyone who ever sees her! She got her first wheelchair at 9 months old in a trial Denver Children's Hospital was running to see if introduction to the chair was beneficial at such an early age. It was the tiniest little thing! She loved it! Now you'd better watch your toes when she gets that chair going!

    Stylin' in her new wheels!

    Edited to add: Last photo of Kendra, I promise!

    Hey, Rachel, as Billy Joel said, "sometimes a fantasy/is all you need."[​IMG]

    Blooie, Kendra is such a doll! I think it is just marvelous that they could give her mobility at such an early age; run over toes seem a pretty small price to pay in exchange for Kendra's growth and happiness.
