I know many have emailed or Facebooked asking about Mary's lip. We *think* we are on the upswing now. We have had several days in a row now where the abscess on her lip is getting smaller and is not expelling pus and blood. For the last three weeks, her lip would get better for a couple of days, and then is would get worse again. Our plastic surgeon has been great about seeing us every week to monitor Mary's healing, but we were starting to get a little tired of weekly appointments. We are very happy that her body has taken care of this stitch on it's own, and avoiding the possibility of having to undergo a small day surgery to open up and clean out her abscess. So thank you for all your kind emails and messages, we just didn't know how to respond confidently before now.
Although summer time weather has been delayed and inconsistent, we have been out and about making the most of our summer vacation. Here is a quick sneak peak at some of the fun we have been having...
Going to the water park...
Our first camping trip of the year - Gallagher Lake
Although it was chilly at night and early morning, it was a great trip
So great, that the girls were tuckered out each night!
Second Camping Trip: Whatshan Lake
The true test of fun being had - dirty hands and feet at the end of the day!
A trip down to the coast to visit family...and the ocean, and Chinatown, and ride
the Sky Train, City transit buses, Sea Buses, escalators and elevators...
Where the girls learned: What's better than one Uncle?
Hope you are busy enjoying your summer as well!
