California

So sorry for the lack of updates.. We are in California for a little getaway and it has been WONDERFUL! Bel is doing so fabulous right now. This week I am at my parents house visiting while my mom is in town from Brasil, but tomorrow we're heading down to San Diego for a week at the beach. I remember when we were in for her G-tube surgery, her nurse Rhonda told us that this summer Bela would be sitting on the sand in a bathing suit having a blast at the beach... well, here we are! She's ready with her toes painted pink. :)

Nothing new health wise to report.. thank goodness! She has managed to stay 'well' for an entire almost 2 months now! I am so grateful everyday for the many many prayers offered on her behalf when times weren't going as smoothly. It is wonderful to be where we are, but there is not a day that goes by that i do not remember those days.. They make days like today so sweet.

Have fun at the beach!!! I'm so jealous, but SOOOO happy that you are having a blast! Ethan is a little confused on the fact that Benson is visiting CA, he thinks he moved there and is a little worried about it! He wants to go to your house EVERYDAY to knock on the front door to see if anyone answers! :) So do Ethan a favor when you get back and let him know so he can resume playing with his BEST BUDDY!!! :)
