Welcome to my attempt at keeping the masses up to date

Please note: my blog is full of my thoughts, opinions (which are not always "right"), random things relating to my family and friends and the occasional Cut and Paste news.... whatever is important to me. I ramble on from time to time (that's the St. Sauveur in me) and at the end of whatever I wrote you may question what on earth I was thinking or it may not even make sense to you.....sorry....I warned you. You may not always like what you read (I do have an insane case of "Potty Mouth" which I try to hide on here, but it won't always happen) or what you see, but we all have our own opinions on things. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments. I do ask that you please leave your name so I know who I'm responding to. If you want to email me privately you may do so at Thanks

The wait is over

Taylor got her first prosthetic today!!!! Thank you Shriners.

Very cool. What does Taylor think of it?

Nina said...

She was a little shocked at first. A bit of "how come my arm is now twice as long???? and I have 2 hands???" She grabbed at it to try to get a feel for it but the silcone sleeve that helps hold it on is a bit thick and was causing some restraint so I took that off and just left the arm and hand on her real arm she loves it. She started sucking on her pacifier (which the fakie is holding) and she's liking it so I'm psyched for her

That's great. I never realized they started them out so young.

Nina said...

I didn't either. Dartmouth was saying around 12 months.... luckily a nurse up there called Shriner's for me and got her in now so she'll be able to use it to help her sit and crawl and get used to the extra weight and whatnot.

Makes total sense. One of my blogging mommy friends has a 4 month old and she is already starting to crawl commando style.
