Happy New Year's

Another year has come and gone and it's hard to believe we're heading into 2011.  This past year has been a roller coaster ride for our family.  Things started out seemingly well and hit a tailspin in May, it didn't really seem to slow down until mid October.  By then the holiday season officially started and boom it's the end of the year.

High Points of 2010

-Family Visits
-Girls Weekend-Nashville
-Successful Relay for Life
-Kaitlyn's Birth
-Girl Scout Camp
-J started 5th Grade
-H started Kindergarten
-Awesome holiday season
-White Christmas

Low Points of 2010

-Kaitlyn's unknown birth defect
-Kaitlyn's major surgery at 6 weeks old
-Constant worry about what our future holds
-Insane amount of hospital & doctor bills

Kaitlyn's diagnosis has opened a whole new world up to us, one that's had many ups and downs.  Looking back, I don't think I would change the fact we did not know about the Spina Bifida.  We've learned a lot about the SB community and life and I've met some awesome, awesome SB families online and hope to meet many in person one day. 

So it really looks like the high points outweigh the low points, but those low points were & are stressful.  During all of this though, I've had great supportive family members & friends and they are the ones that helped me/us get through it all. 

So from our family to yours, Happy New Year!
