This is Darrin, attempting my first blog post since Anna was born. I wanted to give a quick update, even though we don't know much at this point. We arrived at 5 AM for prep, and they took her back for surgery around 7. They told us beforehand that surgery would probably take until mid to late afternoon. The latest update was that Dr. Brains was still working and that things were progressing. I'll post again when we know more.
I'm a Midwestern girl who's lived in Missouri, Utah, Missouri again, Nebraska, Mississippi and Iowa. This is my story of life with my farmer-turned-professor husband, two exceptional little boys, and one extraordinary little girl who happens to have Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome. The stories you are about to read are all real; I couldn't make it up if I tried.
