I can't stress enough how proud we are of Maddie for being so brave and good through all of this. She has been exceptionally well behaved under the circumstances and lets the nurses and doctors do their jobs. Everyone who comes into her room keeps saying that she is so beautiful. She really is....inside and out! 

Today is her second surgery. May god watch over her and help her recover back to the healthy and happy Maddie that we all love!

Last day of School

Maddie had her last day of school today. First she performed in her Spring concert last night and today was a special day...her class gave her a pizza goodbye party! She is a lucky girl to have such loving friends and teachers. Maddie was also given so many thoughtful gifts to bring with her to the hospital. She can't wait until she can see her friends again this summer.

We are only days away from Maddie's surgery. She has a lot of fun things planned prior to her hospital stay and is really enjoying all of us (her family) being together. Such a sweet girl.

What's a bog?

Maddie overheard me talking about her blog and she asked me all confused..."What's a Bog Aunt Candice??" I said no "Blog" ..."Oh a BL..OG? BOG?" LOL it was too cute. I explained to her that all of her family and friends want to know how she is and see her beautiful smile, so they visit her special blog :)

So on behalf of Maddie, thank you all for visiting this BOG!
