Good on you Lindaloo,
I know that the pain must have been hard to deal with but I so bet the outcome was well worth it to be able to do that for your daughter and to feel like a part of things again...It is sad that we have to give up so much for our CP but its even nicer when we tell the CP to take a hike and we fight for a happy life....makes you feel a bit impowered!
I bet no one will care what your house looks like next week because I know your daughter was prob just happy to have you with a smile on your face and to be a part of this wonderful occasion.
Congrats on the new baby to come, what a blessing!
Wishing you many more blessing what ever they may be
