The CHUG is BACK!!!

Hey everyone!! 

It has been a really rough couple years for us. I have struggled with numerous surgeries and proceudres on my brain and neck. Ever since I was initially diagnosed, things for the CHUG have pretty much, taken a back seat.  Fortunately, Bean has remained really healthy through it all!! Her lung function is the best it has ever been and she has continued to fight this battle without any major setbacks. 

Our goal is the same at it has been from the start...

So many of you know me by now......im emotional. Especially when it comes to my girls.  Delaney tends to draw different emotion from me however considering what we have been thru, continue to go thru and what is yet to come.

The day finally came.....KINDERGARTEN. Now, Bean has been watching her big sister Riley head off to catholic school for the last 4 years. You would of thought she would be okay with the whole uniform idea.......

So as many of you may know, there has been an big deal made about Sarah M and her fight to be placed on the adult transplant list. Since she was only 10 years old, she was not elegible for "adult lungs". Had she been 12, she would be. So I am so thrilled to post that Sarah's family fought so hard for her and a judge overturned the standing eligibility for adult lungs. Granting Sarah a small window to recieve a donor, Sarah got her lungs TODAY!!! 2 day shy of her parents challenging the inti...

Winter 2011

Well I'm sure our winter has been just as stressful as everyone’s due to the weather. But for those of you with little ones, they are having the best time of their lives with all this white stuff. Laney had a recent appointment for a "regular" checkup with Dr. Sam at CHOP and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. Laney is still within the 50% for height and weight, which is the most they can ask for her with regards to growth. And as usual Laney puts on her show for everyone who...

A trip to Virtua Voorhees

Well I might as well tell this story since according to Mommy, "it happened on my watch" last Sunday.


We were swimming at my parents when it was time for Laney to come out and get dressed in her jammies to go home. Jil stripped her down when taking her out of the hot tub and i wrapped her up in a towel since I knew it was going to be cold in my parents’ house.


Once we walked in the back door I placed Laney down on the hardwood floor so i could grab ...

The little ones were so fun to watch as they were able to get an extra close look at the polar bear swimming, a peac...

Yup....2 Years Old!!! Where has the time gone?? Delaney has been such a wonderful light in our lives that looking back, we cannot imagine life without her.  The struggles we face daily with her and her care are overwhelming some days, but to hear her giggle, to tease her sister or to just be down right bad, brings tears of joy to my eyes. What a lucky mommy i am to have this little bean to keep me laughing.


We had a recent stay at Hotel CHOP on Thursday May 6th. Delan...
