Dear Santa, waiting to see if we made the list...






Would you believe me if I told you....





That they did this all on their own? Well, it's true. :)

If you haven't heard from us in a while it's because "all is calm, all is bright."

We've had a very uneventful transition into winter- just the way we like it. Last July Faith was put on a prophylactic antibiotic. This is what's kept her out of the hospital. Just when it looks like she is going to get really sick, she recovers. It's amazing! She even was exposed to the swine flu a few months ago, and other then coughing blood for a few weeks came out unscathed. In addition to the antibiotic, she is on an inhaled steroid which is also boosting her immune system.

As I posted last summer, this winter has huge implications for what this next year holds. If she has a "decent" cold/flu season she will be a candidate for re-constructive airway surgery this summer and if successful would mean decannulation.

Brian and I are looking forward to a two week break from teaching. We love what we do, but it will be nice to just hang out with our girl (btw, Brian's school was on the front page of the Denver Post today, neat little story here).


For those of you who have not done so already, you can sign up to receive e-mail alerts when the blog is updated. I always feel bad when people tell me they check the blog so frequently and I have not updated in a while. I will be sure to update more in the coming weeks...it's a much more manageable task when I am not working.

Hope you are all enjoying the Holidays!

Jen & CO.

OHMYGOSHOHMYGOSH - you need to write The Story of Faith Edona. That is so cute.

Those have got to be the cutest pictures I have seen in a long time!! And even better that they did that on their own, without being posed!

I wanted to say thanks again for hosting the cookie exchange. I had a blast! Next time I'll actually bring cookies!

Looking forward to more blog posts coming soon!

Those photos are precious! Great news on Faith's winter health so far! Now that I think about it, I wonder why more children aren't put on prophylactic antibiotics?

Yes, we experience the refreshment of an academic work schedule here, too. Feels good.

Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas Day! Barbara
