Good morning Mom and Dad,
It is Saturday, and I just want you to know, that I am still an ARMY girl. I wake up at about 4:30 am, in time for “bottle” formation, and right afterward I follow it with PT where I get Nana to walk and “burp” me. It is grueling excercise for an eleven weeker, but I do it. I play with Nana, holding back the burps just long enough so that she will walk around the house several times and I can check out all the lights, and pictures on the wall. This morning we watched the sunrise in the library. It was really pretty, and Nana says you worked all night and the sunrise means you will be getting off work soon. I hope you get some rest. My favorite spot to sit and eat is on the chair or couch in the family room, I can look up and there is a HUGE black and white photo of you on the wall. So technically I have breakfast with you every morning…
Speaking of breakfast… I must say, I have been on the new formula now since later Tuesday night, and I am really noticing less “bubbles” in my belly. Things are definately better in that department.
I also want you to know that Nana made my cardiology appointment and has given the information to Tricare so they will authorize my referral. Good news, it looks like she will be able to take me to see the senior pediatric cardiologist at Mott’s Children’s Hospital at the University of Michigan. That appointment is scheduled for Tuesday March 10th at 8:00 am in Ann Arbor. I am going to have everything checked and Nana will ask them the questions you have about my heart. If you want you can see his photo and all the information about him on line. (Which Nana says she did with you already)
His name is Dr. Macdonald H. Dick I also will see my pediatrician again when you are here visiting me, so you will get to meet him, and the three other female physicians in my pediatrician’s office.
So now to the extra good part of my love letter to you… the part about ME..
Did I mention, that little thing where Nana is always taking photos, well, you may be shocked but Pops has her hands down…. everytime he holds me, he says to Aunt Arri, “hey Arri, take a picture with my camera phone”. Here is one he took most recently…
I was having so much fun and just happy as could be. He has an entire phone full of pictures of … ME. I sent you my letter early today so you could read it before you go to sleep after your staff duty. This way you will dream of my face, and me. I love you and hope you and Dad are doing well. Can’t wait to see you again, love Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
