This Made Me Smile

This scene made me smile today . . .  Katya tucks down a good breakfast pretty well every morning now without any problem! Protein (eggs, coconut yogurt or meat), cereal or toast and fruit!

And this back view made me smile all over again . . .

So grateful that good nutrition, love, and care has helped Katya's body to become stronger and healthier!

And again, grateful, ever so grateful, that Katya's plastic surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Dr Dorafshar, was willing to go out of his comfort zone and not shave her entire head when she had her surgery in March 2012! Had he done so, we would not have those lovely cascades of (entirely natural!) curls falling over hear shoulders . . .  And aside from all that, it would have been traumatic to Katy as her hair is very important to her and she did NOT want anyone cutting it, and made that clear pre-surgery.

What's making you smile today?!
