Happy 5th Birthday Dakota (June 14th)

It’s hard to believe that another of my adorable great nieces, Dakota is 5 years old today. I remember the year she was born. On the 13th of June, I underwent knee surgery to have a torn cartilage in my left knee removed as well as an arthroscopy done. The day after my knee surgery, Dakota was born and then on the 15th of June, my mother underwent knee replacement surgery.

Now 5 yrs later I’m waiting to see my surgeon next month to set the date for my total knee replacement surgery to be done. I’ve already been through all the pre-op testing and have been given the go ahead from the cardiologist. I’ll be so glad when this is over & done with. Not just my surgery but my sister, Dakota’s “Ga Ga” (Grandma) is awaiting a date to have heart surgery done. She has to undergo a valve replacement. Needless to say it’s been a busy spring with us both undergoing various Pre-Op testing, a surprise 60th birthday party for her husband Rick as well as all these other family birthdays. Looks like our summer or fall will be spent recuperating from our surgeries (and birthday's).

Well Dakota's is the last of the little one’s birthdays until December when Jaden’s birthday comes along. I couldn’t let my adorable little great niece’s birthday go by without wishing her a wonderful birthday.

Happy Birthday to you dear Dakota. Here’s wishing you a very happy 5th birthday. I hope that all your birthday wishes & dreams come true.

I love you
Aunt Diane
