Mini turns 12
« on: August 29, 2012, 11:24:06 PM »
Tomorrow, 8/30, Mini will turn 12.  She jokes that she's only turning 4 1/2 - she doesn't want to be a teenager next year because "when you're a teenager, everyone expects you to do all the grown-up stuff and actually LIKE it!"

Her t-cells continue to drop. Her blood cells continue to be wonky.  Despite our best efforts, we just can't find a reason. She's been back in braces for a while, complaining about them everyday. However, she is now 5ft 2in and weighs in at a whopping 105lbs! Not quite sure where she's put the weight, unless it's in her feet. These measurements are from 4mths ago.  We see her doc again in 9 days, so those numbers may be a bit higher. :o

Overall it's been a very trying year for our entire family on several fronts.  But, things are starting to slow down and we're looking forward to an uneventful (at least a less eventful) next few months.

Happy birthday to everyone else who shares in Mini's birthday month!

Happy Birthday Mini! Make sure you have a look at the slice of cake currently on your profile page.

I can't believe you're twelve already! My how time flies!


I hope you have the best birthday ever. :)

Happy birthday sweet girl!!!  Poppy (The cat) says happy birthday too!

My own granddaughter turns 12 one day after you, so you both are the same age.  It's a shame we don't live closer, I'm sure you two would get a long well.

I hope your birthday's the best ever!!!

A big Birthday Hug for Mini!

Already 12, it is hard to believe.

I hope the day was fantastic, and that there are many more in the future.

Wow! Time flies. Happy Birthday Mini -- apparently you may eat all the cake you wish for the near future (before you have to do those grown-up things and fake liking it.)
