My brave princess... February 24, 2011
Hopefully Avery only has a few more weeks until we train for Peritoneal Dialysis!!

Cuteness... February 23, 2011
I have to remind myself all that Avery is going through and how uncomfortable she must be every single day. She can't sleep on her tummy that long because of the PD tubes or on one side because of her hemo lines. She hates that she "doesn't look cute" because her PD lines on her tummy stick out. When she sits her pants rub on her scar where they removed her kidney and that is still tender. I feel bad for her....
Happy Valentine's Day February 14, 2011
