January 2011 and 2010 Summary

Hello friends and family. Sorry I have neglected Olivia's blog for so long. The good news is that she has been doing really well so far this winter and so there is not a lot of news. Olivia was able to return to school at the end of September. She is attending a new school in Holland and it is a great fit for her. She really loves going to school.

 We were able to take her off of the full Hospice program and return her to the Hospice Pediatric Early Care Program. Hospice of Michigan is a wonderful organization and I'm not just saying that because I worked there for years. ;-) Seriously, our nurse Jill lives near us and would help us with anything day or night. Our social worker Sheila has been a huge cheerleader for us. Sheila did a beautiful hand cast of Olivia's hand for us and arranged for us to go to the circus and sit in a private booth upstairs. We also attended the Hospice birthday party and got to meet Duff Goldman from Ace of Cakes.

Olivia's health has been up and down but mostly stable. Her hair has begun growing back after her last metabolic stroke. Please keep her in your prayers that she will continue to be healthy. Olivia was also baptized along with all the children in September 2010. It was such a nice day for us. Thanks everyone for your support.

Eding family!

I am so happy to hear that Olivia is stable and doing well, God is good! Despite the challenges Olivia faces everyday, she appears happy and content. I will continue to pray for Olivia and your family. Many blessings to you. God's peace,
