It's been a long year and I haven't done any writing or journal keeping in umpteen years. But this past year my daughter has lost her lower leg and we still don't know why.

Her blood is 4 times thicker than ours, and she'll be on  coumadin the rest of her life.

Half of her spleen is dead due to blood clots. She isn't diabetic. She just got a cast made of her leg for her prosthetic. She can't get it fast enough.

I'm her primary care giver. She's been cutting back on her meds and doing more for herself. She says she has lots to make up for. She missed her high school graduation. We are planning a trip to Disneyland in June...I haven't had a vacaion or anything in over 10 years! I really need this!
