I am so glad she has this trip to look forward to. Her heart catheterization is scheduled for Tue., Feb. 9th. She doesn't know yet. She freaks out so much that it is just kinder not to tell her until right before it occurs. The anticipation of any medical procedure sends her into a flurry of worry. She does know that she will be spending half a day at Children's on Monday for all the pre-op testing. That brought some tears and, "Are they going to poke me?" I honestly don't know--but I'm guessing they will probably have to poke her for something.
She organized a ballet show yesterday with the little kids and as I watched her twirling around it was hard to believe that she has anything wrong with her. She looks totally healthy. I'm so thankful that her doctor did the test and caught the problem!
She dressed all the little kids up to 'do ballet.' Then they all commanded me to 'picture' them. I was happy to oblige.

Dude! Don't be letting your big sister dress you up like this! It's serious blackmail material.
