Exciting News!

Chyann is having her operation on Wednesday!
The day after tomorrow!!

We are sooo excited!
It's should only take about an hour to remove the ilizarov frame and affix the femur to the rod lying next to it.

Day surgery, no hospital stay unless there are complications of course.

Random picture:
Me dreaming of summer. Jenny munching on the sunflowers.

Right in front of our house is a 100 plus year old Elm tree. We think it contracted dutch elm disease last year and has died. We were going see what happens with it this spring before doing anything with it.

These last few weeks I've been seeing lots of bark in the snow that has fallen from the branches and was thinking it might need to come down before then if it were really that rotten/decayed/weak to loose so much bark.


The picture below doesn't really show how much has fallen down, but gives you an idea what I've seen.

Yesterday I spied the bark culprits!
A pair of woodpeckers are pecking all over my tree!

They don't appear to be making a hole anywhere, but are skipping here and there pecking at the bark.

I wonder if they eating bugs or something?


And what do you know? Two blog posts in two days. WOW!

I'm so happy to hear Chyann will have her L brace removed during day surgery. I'll be thinking of you all on Wednesday. Good luck.

I am so glad that it's almost over for Chy, well, key word almost, but it's so close to back to being on a horse.

I'm so happy for Chyann. I know she probably complained here and there, but what kid wouldn't? She has been very courageous and I'm glad the worst of it is over.
