Happy New Year friends and family! For those of you that continue to keep The Marys and our family in your prayers, we can not thank you enough. So many of you continue to ask how they are doing so I wanted to just give a quick update…
Mary Elizabeth is now officially off the feeding tube and has been since the end of November. She is eating all of the normal things that you would expect from a 3 year old like pb&j, macaroni and cheese, applesauce, yogurt and chips 🙂 It is amazing how you take for granted the little things in life, like eating! It brings us great joy to see how far both of them have come especially Elizabeth. This is a huge milestone that we wanted to share with you. After all, your prayers have helped see her through to this point.
Our goal in 2012 is to avoid Children’s Mercy and put the medical issues related to The Marys’ behind us. At this point Ellen does not have any signs from TTTS. Elizabeth has what we hope to be a mild cerebral palsy, but her mind is sharp 🙂
Peace and abundance to all of you in 2012!
love, The Govea Family
