Then months later I think about it. It's all I can think about. Nights like tonight are when I feel panicked. I panic about what could have happened and what has happened to many other families. I grieve for those families. I am thankful for my baby. These nights are when I want to break down & cry. I can't help but think about what she looked like, how she couldn't do anything, what she must have felt & thought.
So although Aili is doing great I still worry. She is my baby and I love her. We can always use the prayers of friends, family & strangers and so can so many other families dealing with the same issues.

"The first child got me shiny new, like a new pair of shoes, but he got blisters, too," writes columnist Anna Quindlen. "The second child got me worn, yes, but comfortable."
More to come later.

It was really nice to get : ).
All these things that people do for us are so great. We really appreciate it. But I think it will be even cooler for Aili when she gets older. She will be able to look back at the pictures, read this blog, & hear from stories from us, about all of the wonderful things people have done and all of the amazing things she has fought through to get where she is going.
So thank you all again, not just from us, but from Aili too!
I also would like to ask for some extra prayers for a friend of ours. I won't go into details or give any names for privacy purposes though. It would be nice if everyone could pray for a little boy that has the same thing as Aili. He is just about the same age as her & also lives on Fort Lewis.
I have to say we have some great friends & family!! I want to thank everyone for all that they do. All of the prayers & positive thoughts are wonderful, along with the words of encouragement. They mean a lot to us! I would also like the thank Carol for feeding our crazy cats for us & getting the mail, and Toni for watching our sweet baby girl Phoebe!!
Also Thank you SO much Virginia for the wonderful stuffed animal for Aili, it really brightened all of our day!! I know that lots of people are thinking of us, but it was a nice reminder and very unexpected!!! Here is a picture of Aili with the card & cute lion : )
