Kiann and Karina our STAR's

There are things that are more important that walls and cob cottage's that are being demolished. .
If you have never seen our granddaughter Kiann before, actually you probably have if you look way back on our posts.
Here she is.
Kiann had surgery on both of her Achilles tendon's today, Kiann has Charcot Marie Tooth Syndrome... just like another beloved member of our family, Karina.

Except when Karina had the same operation CMT.. wasn't known.......Karina spent six weeks in plaster of Paris when she was seven years old.
Nana could not help but retell the story.
Mum wouldn't take her medicine.
Except when her Dad said if she took half of it, then he would swallow the other half.
The reply...
"If you like it so much, you should have all of it"...
How lucky are we that we have such beautiful, strong, loving, steadfast kids and grandchildren.

That's our granddaughter and she smiles.

My brain over the last few days does not compute as to dust and noise, or to being woken so early in the morning.......
We stood well away from our kitchen wall at one point today. JUST IN CASE !
BIG GULP... Hopefully :-) over the next few days we can show you.
Kiann, yep, you follow in your mum's footsteps we are so proud of you.  XXX
Lots and lots of love Nana and granddad x x x

What lovely girls you have! I hope that your cottage holds up. It has had more than it's share of trouble in the last year!
Hang in there!
Love for me and the pups!

It is a shame that she has to go through this but wonderful that she keeps her spirits up.

Shaun was in plaster about 8 weeks when he had his achilles done back he about 1978. I think he was about six.

Hope Kiann recovers quickly

I haven't been to your blog in forever! I really need to catch up on what's been going on. Your granddaughter is gorgeous and I love her name! It's amazing how far some of these surgeries have come. Hope she has a quick and full recovery:)

Beautiful Kiann - I hope she's being waited on properly - bless her sweet heart. Karina's comment about the medicine sounds reasonable to me, lol....
