Here is the Pumpkin that I made for our little Elli in honor of the Pumpkin Run/Walk this weekend. I put it up at her grave site. Not too bad for a Sharpie!
Hey all it has been a little while since I updated: Please keep Brad, Kellie and baby Carter in your thoughts and prayers as he is really battling since he was born a couple days ago. Also Ava who had a reherniation needs lots of prayers also as she is extubated but still very much fighting for her life. I hate CDH. In other news, I was at my sister's pre-school today visiting some of the kiddos and one of her preschoolers cousins was there to visit. She was 8 years old and a CDH survivor...What a small world. She had her repair surgery, a reherniation surgery and most recently a spine surgery for her scoliosis. Even her aunt whom she was staying with didn't even know what her birth defect was called. Man we really need to get the word out about CDH
There is a yearly memorial walk in Kansas City called The Pumpkin Run/Walk. Brian's cousin Jenny is going to be there to hand out CDH Awareness wristbands and information on CDH. I really wish that I could be there too, but I am in my best friend's wedding, and it is going to take me all day to get beautiful. We hope to raise even more awareness by everyone being able to visit Elli's blogsite and then visiting others from there. If anyone in the KC area is interested, stop by and show CDH support.
Hope all is well with everyone. Oh yah, I thought that it would be cool to know how much gas is around the country. So anyone that reads this post, add a comment on where you live and how much gas is in your area, because I think we might have about the cheapest. It was 2.69 in Treynor Iowa today...must be because of the election coming up. Yep I am officially a dork and I need to get back to work so I have something constructive to do with my time instead of wondering about gas prices in other parts of the country.
