i have a favorite niece

my family doesn't read this blog so i can say that. i love all of my nieces and nephews but from the time k was born, i knew she was extra special. she had a special look about her. she has a special attitude. as a baby and toddler she was FEARLESS (that by the way is NOT always a good thing). she has always had a mind of her own. she has a twin brother and a sister who is one year older than them.

they found a mass in her gut yesterday. she's going in for surgery tomorrow. it's not right when they find a mass in the gut of a 12 year old. it's just not

i called k last night to remind her of something. when she came to visit her aunt (me) after HER surgery. aunt was staying at grandma's house (for ONE day only. aunt couldn't take more than that. when grandma offered to warm auntie's pajamas, auntie got VERY SCARED indeed). k was a very little grrrl at that time. aunt had her piglet at grandma's house to keep her company. aunt LOVED that piglet. k walked in and took that piglet and aunt didn't have the heart to take piglet back. k still has that piglet and auntie is STILL steamed.....

anyway, as i said, it ain't right when a 12 year old has to have her abdomen opened up.

poor kid.. I'll think happy thoughts for her. It seriously sucks when kids have health problems.. both for them and for their parents.

I hope she's able to take piglet with her for some comfort, after surgery.

:(

and just because you feel a kinship to one niece/nephew doesn't mean you don't love the rest equally. :)
