Hi! We arrived home from Seattle this past weekend. We are still waiting for all the test results from Ali's Hospital stay (they are trying to determine if she is a candidate for epilepsy surgery). There is a team of doctors that meet every week to discuss unique cases just like Alison's. It's kind of amazing really, all that they can accomplish. In fact, Alison's neurosurgeon's dad (also a neurosurgeoun) pioneered the very epilepsy surgery they are discussing! Anyway, I don't have any updates to share but I do have some photos from our trip! :-)
We left a little early and stopped in Portland before driving up to Seattle. My mom, brother, and sister-in-law all live there and I thought a little "fun" might be just the ticket for Ali. Just before we arrived in Portland, we stopped at Multnomah Falls to take in the view and stretch our legs a bit. I remember visiting these falls many times as a child and it was great to share this with Alison.
I didn't have my "real" camera with me...just a small point and shoot so my photos aren't as good as I would have liked. In fact, the one below added a very weird color cast over Ali and I...not sure why.
I can't even tell you how much I miss all of the GREEN!!! Montana does get green...a little anyway, but it only lasts a couple of months at most. Growing up in the Northwest has completely spoiled me!
I love this photo of Ali. In spite of all the pretty crappy stuff she's going through she can light up a room (or a forest :-) with her smile!
Scattered among the blue trees were these bronze and silver (ish) statues!
And this photo was just for fun! I LOVE me a big ferris wheel! :-) This one wasn't open yet, but it was still pretty to look at!
Thanks for stopping by! I will be back to sharing stampy things soon! Hugs, Laurie
