Please Keep Her Close

Our Meeks is going in for her 10th or 11th surgery tomorrow morning. So many, I've lost track. It makes me sad that she's so very young, and has endured so very much. 

Wednesdays are usually wild around here. Amy comes over, and we make pie until the sun comes up ; ) Today, the day before surgery...I happen to be alone. No Amy (in-laws leaving). No Dave (conference). Just Avi, Rainey and I.

Tonight, I'm taking my Meek, strapping our matching aprons on, blasting the music and making a ~

Hmmm...kinda wonder how this one will turn out?

Thank you to everyone who has already reached out to us with thoughts and prayers. We truly appreciate it.

Please keep our girl close tomorrow.

We thank you.


  1. I'm sure I'm not the only one who will be praying for her and Sgt. Merenda tomorrow and everyday.


  2. Praying for a quick recovery for your beautiful baby girl! {{{HUGS}}}

  4. I'm so so so sorry. It sucks. It's crappy. I hate the hand you, Aviana and Dave have been dealt. It's not fair. You crank up that music and try to occupy your mind as much as possible. And please keep us updated as much as possible tomorrow. I'm sensing a few texts tomorrow. I apologize in advance if I bombard you, no hard feelings on my end if you ignore them, I know you'll be busy and have your mind on other things.

    I love you dearly.

  5. How did the pie turn out? Thoughts and prayers for Aviana tomorrow.

  6. So glad I checked the blog tonite... You are ALL in our thoughts. Stay strong just like Avi will. We love you tons.
