We celebrated our middle daughter's 3rd birthday on August 12. We kept it low key, just the eight of us. As we enjoyed the day, I couldn't help but remember Josephine's last birthday. We were expecting Veronica to be discharged the following day so we feeling a mixture of excitement and anxiety, since we had already been told three times that she was coming home but never did. When it was time for cake, we set a place for Veronica at the table and put her picture there. At that point, we were so ready to have her home it just felt wrong that she wasn't with us. This year couldn't have been more different. We celebrated with no worries at all. Happy Birthday, Josephine!!
