I'm not sure if that helped, I know when we had medical issues w our DD it helped knowing that someone else got through it.

we will be thinking of your family (hugs)
Thank you for your hugs, thoughts and prayers ladies, I appreciate it. That does help Happy Mommax4, it's really helpful to hear about others who have gone through it and made it out okay on the other side. That's really what I am looking for right now, just stories that will reassure me this will be okay.
