Today is katherines birthday! shes 19 which means shes actually an adult now, which i know shes gonna rub in my face. Whats there to say about Katherine that isnt obvious? Shes actually pretty wierd sometimes, which is nice to see! Shes a fairly good cook and she likes watching tv series on her computer. Her favorite color combination is green and purple. She’s never dyed her hair. She loves Relient K. She has a fairly clean car. That’s it basically. There are more obvious ones! She L-O-V-E-S her family (me, the most of course), and she cares about her friends. She loves Jesus too. She does her best at lots of things and tries to be the best. She’s smart and has nice hair. She helps so much its not even funny. She comes every weekend she can to take care of mommy. Katherine’s gonna be a good mom. (if she lets her kids finish the Little Mermaid in peace). I love katherine. love, Emily
*** plus a first words from the sponsor. I woke the Monday morning of Feb 4th 1991 with a 9AM appt that I was sure was going to bring me another afternoon baby…. she didn’t come until 11:55 AM (edited portion, yes PM, I meant to type that, i had not forgotten, just another chemo fog typo)…I didnt particularly want her born that day as it would mean sharing it with her grandmother and I thought everybody should have their own day,) but at 9 AM I wanted her big, chunky baby-self out. Well Baby Huey didnt come until the end of the day to show me she would do it her way always…. she turned out to be a birthday sharing loving kinda girl …and over the years we all loved that she shared the day with her Omi, who has passed on great elegance and finesse to Katherine… I saw all of Katherine’s family in her every day…
Dana just drove away with Melinda and Emily (Emily to cheerleading) Melinda to the airport. sniff sniff… the hard tough days of post-chemo have arrived so I will try to capture these wonderful days with Melinda … soon. plus report from a fantastic appt with doctor yesterday…. plus a graphic recount of what is happening to me lately… BUT for now it is about our Katherine… a superstar… biggest baby i gave birth to…. gentle sweet delicate Katherine…. uh I am fighting the temptation to tell a story… maybe later when i can word it delicately.
