Movement For Mia

Brave Mia (arm amputation day)

Mia is such a brave super girl.  She was scared and told us she didn’t want them to take her hands but the nurses told us she was so brave.  Her surgery went well with both arms now ending below her elbows, her left slightly longer than her right.  The pain managment team are doing a great job keeping her comfortable.  I have cried so so much and felt so far down in depths of sadness last night but today I felt it was important to be strong.  She is such a sweet, smart, beautiful girl who will learn new ways to do things and I’m sure inspire so many people.  Life ahead will be challenging at times but also wonderful.  We will definitely appreciate life so much more and look for all the positives.
