What wonderful pictures! I'm so happy you made it home safe and sound.


I think I need a camera like yours Moreena, great pictures! I'll be checking in often for more updates, give Annika a big hug from Anna. Anna is already talking about playing with Annika again. Too bad we didn't capture that goodbye kiss they gave each other, that was sweet.

I'm so glad you are home safe and sound.

So glad to hear that the clot is still external to the liver!! (Been making my M.D. husband translate for me.)I love the pictures. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

Becca, Jason, & Natalie

Thank you so very much for posting the pictures!!! We had so much fun. Thanks for letting us come to the liver-hospital party!!! But I'm really glad to hear that you are home now. Sigh...even with a naughty cat - isn't it always better at home?Give the girls a great big NATALIE Bearhug!!!!


Adorable pictures all around! Gotta wonder if the Huge Laughs™ are as maniacal as they look. Especially like Annika gazing at Jörg, and smilling in the chair with Anna, and batting the balloons, and Frankie, and well, a lot of great pics there. Thanks for sharing!


Hip Hip Hooray!


Wow. I "go away" for a few days, and you get to come home! YAY! I love the pictures of the Liver Girls party! No matter the circumstances the girls played under, they still had fun, and I know it helped you too!Glad that you're home, and I hope that these next two weeks are VERY uneveentful for you.


Great news about the clot! Your family is just a joy. I love the pictures. Welcome home :)

I'm relieved that you're all together again. Your girls are stunningly beautiful and that top picture of daddy and daughter made me cry. Sending good thoughts your way.


What a wonderfully sweet set of photos...so heartwarming. Your family is beautiful. And I am so happy to hear that things are looking better. Hopefully they truly are, and you can soon put this misadventure behind you.


Beautiful pics. I'm so glad you all get to come home, and for the good news!


What great pictures! Your girls are so precious. Even in the hospital Anni seems so full of joy. And Frankie has that sweet innocent look. They are just beautiful! I'm so glad to hear you are back home.tina

Hooray for some good news. And hooray for photos. Hard to choose a favorite, but the one of Annika the Princess is wonderful.~Elizabeth

Sheryl (and Justice)

Yea, glad you're home. Justice loves to sit with me to look at anything on the computer. He loves pictures of anybody. When I told him all the girls were "liver girls" he asked where the boys were. Guess he felt left out! :) Anyway, glad you got to see some friends, wish it was under more...maybe less...exciting circumstances. Again, congrats on being home!!

Falling Down, November 2004

  • Balloon in hand, my 4-year-old
    twirled across the kitchen floor,
    singing nonsense words
    in her own key.
    "It's my gift!" she declared
    to the world at large, which
    was really only me,
    sitting at the table. Enough
    twirling, and she lost
    her balance, tumbling
    to the floor in a theatrical
    slapstick of elbows and knees.

    She lay on her back
    for a few seconds,
    at the textured ceiling
    with the mysterious
    spaghetti sauce stain.
    Suddenly she
    flapping her arms and legs
    there on the floor, as if to swish
    the imaginary snow
    into a snow angel.

    "Falling down is also a gift!" says she.
