Violet turned 7 nearly a month ago. I thought I'd share a little bit about her celebrations. The Saturday before her birthday, she got to invite 2 friends to accompany her to the movies. The drama, let me tell you. I looked up what "should" be playing at the theater that day. I let her watch the previews of the kid appropriate ones and pick what she most wanted to see. She wanted to see Spy Next Door. I don't remember what the other choices were.

Ashton and Violet were playing dress up's one day. Vi came and asked me to turn on music so they could dance. They were BOTH ballerina's!! Ashton was saying he wanted to be the boy ballerina who got to dance with all the girls. They had a good time.
Well, maybe I should say nightmares. I don't know how many of you gals out there experience very livid dreams while you are pregnant. I do. They are usually not pleasant. They feel so real and I am usually drained emotionally when I wake up. Not the refreshing feeling one hopes for after sleeping. It's aggravating. There is always some major stress or disappointment. Last night it involved Volleyball and a crazy person from my ward (who I don't even thinks plays volleyball) showing up one morning and causing problems. Okay, doesn't sound so bad but it went on and on in my dream and I was so angry and confused. It seemed like it could happen.

That is how I feel when I saw this article about funding for research on Ventricular assist devises for children/infants.. It's a bout time!!!!! While Elaine was awaiting her heart transplant, the one thing we heard over and over was, too bad there isn't an LVAD for kids. Well hopefully this is in the works to be a great tool to help extend life until a donor can be found. I know there have been some experimental devises (mainly from other countries), but they need to b e available to every child who needs them! As a mother of one of the "approximately 60 children younger than age 5 waiting on the heart transplant list may die before a donor organ becomes available", this hits real close to home. Come on scientists, do your stuff! Families are depending on you!
