Belated Updates

I realized I haven't posted anything in months! But thankfully there isn't anything health related to report... for once :). Harmonee has been doing awesome! Her labs are that of a "normal" liver and her liver is doing wonders making itself a new portal vein, bypassing the scar tissue. We have been attempting to ween her of the binkie, but it seems a worse habit then ever! She now has to have 3 binkies when entering the hospital. One in her mouth and one in each hand. Silly girl. I decided in the end though, that I'll let her keep them a while longer. I can't believe she will be two in just a couple months! We have a very special present coming for her birthday... Daddy will be coming home just a few days before!!

Poor Harmonee thinks daddy is the lap top, and each night gives it kisses before she goes to bed. She runs to the computer and shouts "Night daddy! Lub you!" Layla always tells her that its not daddy but she doesn't care, for now it is. Both girls are ready for daddy to be home and I am too!
Layla is starting to take the absence hard, and with all of the holidays she just can't understand why her daddy doesn't come home from work. One the 4th of July she told me "I just want my daddy here. Layla needs him too." It broke my heart and a there has been nights she'll wake up in the middle of the night and start crying for him. She begs to talk to him on skype, or to call him. She just doesn't understand. Just a few more weeks! Just a few more weeks!!

On the bright side... we got family pictures taken while daddy was home on R and R in April :)


  1. She is getting so BIG!! I am so glad to see that she is doing so well, however I miss seeing her! She was the best patient! I loved all the crazy little things she always did, like the position she crossed her legs in to watch tv! Miss her and you! Glad Brandon will be home soon, I hope you have a great reunion!!

    My name is Jenna and I came across your site. Harmonee is an amazing, courageous, strong and determined fighter. She is a brave warrior, smilen champ and an inspirational hero. She will be in my thoughts. I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and love it when people sign my guestbook.
