the Barlow Girl's Valentine's Day Adventure...

I have to hand it to our twins for courageously journeying through another surgery on their feet last week! Each girl has a left foot abnormality, that many never notice, since it's hidden pretty well beneath the cover of their shoes. 

They've had surgery before, but it's been quite awhile, so it was a new experience for them. This was also the first time they were able to go through surgery together! 

Though they may have had second thoughts when it came to the day of their grand ordeal, they rolled into pre-op like pro's! Emma was the entertainment for the day in the OR, on her standard dose of Versed! She doesn't remember it, but gave me permission to impersonate her funny antics while waiting to begin, with most of her visitors afterward. Olivia's the lightweight we've found out with meds, so she just got very sleepy.

Afterward was not such a fun day for either, but things slowly got better and they were discharged after a couple of days. 

Here are our teenaged "little grannies" ready to leave with walkers, wheelchairs and even a shower chair in tow!!:

What was their first wheelchair bound outing?? 

Dinner for their sister's 21st Birthday...,then Joining our friends Tuesday night at a big LOCAL event to support their favorite AI contestant: JASON CASTRO of course!! 

And they were'nt disappointed! His television performance debut "Daydream"(click here to see it on YouTube)---got fantastic comments from the judges--ESPECIALLY Simon--amazing!! Way to go!!!! 

Their message to you--"Pleeaase VOTE for Jason, so we can watch him some more!!!!! oh yeah, and say a prayer for him, he's got the flu this week, has to be well by tomorrow for taping, and TUNE IN on Tuesday night for his 70's week performance!! "

Hey, Rebecca! Sorry to hear that Emma and Olivia needed surgery, but looks like they went through it with flying colors! And it's so cool about Jason and American Idol.
