Happy Birthday Hannah and Ryan

Surgeons in India began a marathon operation on Tuesday to save a two-year-old girl born with eight limbs.

Thirty-six doctors covering a range of specialties from pediatrics to plastic surgery are involved in the 40-hour operation at the Sparsh Hospital in Bangalore.

Doctors believe Lakshmi, who was born attached to a headless conjoined twin that stopped developing in the womb, has an 80 per cent chance of surviving the procedure.

Our kids have their birthdays this week. We are busy wrapping presents and icing cakes late at night. Hannah is nine tomorrow. Ryan is seven on Saturday. We are lucky that they are such nice and trouble free kids. Seeing this young girl reminds me how lucky we are. I hope that she can be helped by some clever doctors.

Update: The amazing x ray is here.

Poor little Lakshmi. It's an incredibly complicated operation, I read. Let's hope all goes well.

Happy birthday to your kids.

When you realize just how wrong things could have gone it does make you grateful to have had healthy children.
Enjoy the birthdays. Scary right?
