UPDATE: 05-10-2013 Our little cousin Imani had her surgery today. According to mom and dad, she did well and now the journey of healing and therapy begin. Thanks to all of those who were sending positive thoughts and prayers to our little cousin and her parents.
UPDATE: My cousin’s daughter got the croup the week of the surgery and the day before the surgery, they had to cancel and reschedule for May 10th. So we are hoping and wishing for health uptil the surgery date.
We have been posting information about my little cousin’s surgery all month long on Facebook in hopes to help my cousin Sebastian and his wife Mari with expenses. The day for her surgery is on the 29th and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for those who donated, shared, and used their words of encouragement for the Corbin Family.
While other’s are celebrating Easter week or weekend, Imani will be undergoing surgery to replace/repair her arm in a condition called Erb’s Palsy. I ask a small favor on my behalf; send good vibes to her family on Imani’s Facebook page. We need to let Sebastian and Mari know that there are other parent’s who are with them in spirit.
I can’t imagine what is going through their heads at this moment, but I can only send my words of encouragement to them via this blog.
To Mari, Sebastian, and Imani
I have not had the chance to meet you in person little lady, but I hope one day we will be able to hug and kiss you. Your parents have shown that through this journey, their love and unity is what will help you heal. They truly are PapaHeroes! You have an army of people who are going to be sending lots of good vibes and thoughts to you! Warm hugs and safe travels. We will be awaiting good news from your parents later this weekend. Here is a picture of a bunny to make you smile!
Love your cousins,
Lucy, Daniela, and Raul!
