Mary is Home!!!!

Great News . . . Mary got to come home from the hospital on Sunday afternoon!!
She was SO excited she smiled the WHOLE ride home from the hospital. Then later that night, Sam and Copper came home from visiting Katie, Emma, and Eloise. Mary was SO excited to see her dog Sam, she giggled with delight!! Mary got a bunch of valentines from her friends. Here is a picture of her with all of the valentines she received. She had fun opening all of the valentines with Mommy and Daddy.
Mom and Dad are trying to adjust to Mary's new feeding schedule. It seems like all we do now is feed her. But we are glad the Mary got her G-tube and made it through the surgery OK. Thanks again to all of you who have been praying for her.
The latest news is Ryan's unit is planning a huge SMA fundraiser in Mary's honor!! It is going to be a 5K/10K run/walk and a 25 and 50 mile bike race. We are still working out the date and most of the details, but it will probably be in April. We will post more details as soon as they are known!

It's great to see Mary will be celebrating her 1st Valentine's Day at home! She looks very happy - and must have lots of friends with all those cards!! I hope Mom & Dad are able to sleep a little easier in their own bed, too! Happy Valentine's Day, Mary!!

Love, Kylie & Neela
