Another Trip Coming up and Interesting News!

Well we are about two weeks away from our next trip over to the IWK for Lilybear, and that means our Peanut is counting down sleeps till she gets to see Linda, and all the wonderful volunteers and staff of RMH again! :) I think she may get more excited every time we go! :) Lilybear is doing great. She is starting to experiment with letting go of objects she is using to help her stand for a few seconds at a time. Once she figures out the balance thing, I am sure that she will take off running instead of "toddling", but I can't wait.

I was watching a bit of the IWK telethon that they had on TV this past weekend, and touched yet again by the simple fact that we have such an amazing children's hospital! After watching some of the stories they aired, I felt I should send Lilybear's story in to the IWK foundation in hopes they could share it with others. My goal when telling others about the IWK is simple, I just want them to know how wonderful, and amazing the staff and volunteers are, and that they truly give the best care and treatments they can to their patients! If it wasn't for this amazing hospital, and the Dr's and Nurses, and Technicians at the IWK, Lilybear may not be where she is now. Any day now she may take her first steps, and we owe so much gratitude to them for getting her to this place.

I was contacted back by a lovely lady that works for the IWK foundation. She asked my permission to post Lilybear's story on theIWK Health Centre Foundation’s online blog – ‘Spirit of Giving.’For posting they  do called 'Feel Good Friday'! We were more than happy to say yes of course! I will be sure to post the link at the bottom of this post, and will let you all know when Lilybear's story will be posted.

Mommy Duties call, so that's all I have for you now! 14 days Till our next trip to IWK! Wish us luck!


  1. I will be watching for the link, I would love to read it!

    Best of luck with the appointment. It is never fun to travel for health appointments, but the people at RMH (at every RMH) are so amazing at making the time away from home that much better.

    Btw, Matthew's amazing physiotherapist that I blog about often actually got his degree at Dalhousie (he is from Newfoundland). Funny huh?

    1. Thanks for the well wishes! This will hopefully be just another check up. In the back of my mind I always fear another relapse though! That is neat that your son's physiotherapist went to Dal! My husband is also from Newfoundland. :)
