A pictorial view of Bobbie...

She has gone from this...
To this...
And from here...
To here...
Wearing a crown of metal...

But who is this?....
Could it be...

It's Bobbie and she's wearing a smile...
One month later the crown is gone and the sight is almost healed,
And she's growing hair.......

A long overdue update:
Bobbie is healing well and smiling more each day. Her hair is coming in nicely and she seldom wears the scarves or caps any more. (Her daughter picked this scarf out for her.) We ask for prayers once again as she is to have surgery this Friday, March 20th, to remove the heart catheter they put in just after her first surgery. We have no idea why they want it removed now just that the outpatient surgery has been scheduled and it needs to come out. We are taking this as a good thing. Bobbie is much more mobile than I think any of the doctor's expected. That's my girl, stubborn as all gets out, and never one to stay down for long....
Many Blessings to you all,
Tess

Tess,
Bobbie's smile is so beautiful, and she is going to be just fine. I will keep her in my prayers for this upcoming surgery. You and I both have spirited daughters I think! Do you think that they got it from us??? Have a nice evening. OH, thank your for your wonderful comments. I am so glad that we are blog friends.
Hugs,
Marilyn

So glad to see Bobbie doing so well!! To make a transparency rub on you need clear transparency sheets for inkjet printer and you print on the shiny side. Then rub off with a bone folder onto your page. I saw a youtube about it. Here is the link:

Dear Tess,
I'm glad to hear that your daughter is doing okay. I was praying for you all around 2/24, wasnt that the day of the surgery? Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog!!

This is wonderful to see her sweet smile. What a difference you see just looking at the first image and the last, her emotion showing in each photo is so moving when put into context of the originally diagnosed illness and the reality of her actual illness. Amazing that smile :)
