For Caitlin

My dear friend Meri's little girl is in brain surgery today at CHOP in Pennsylvania.

Meri has been dedicated to finding out the cause of Caitlin's ongoing vision problems and unfortunately the reason turned out to be tumors. You can read more of her story and sign her guestbook at her CaringBridge site. Meri was a great help to me all year with Jaden's vision issues and especially as he began patching this summer.

Any and all good thoughts for this sweet girl are appreciated today. At the time I am writing this, Caitlin is 5.5 hours into an expected 10-hour surgery.
