Get Your Purple Ready!

We've got our purple picked out!!  How about you??  Are you ready to go #purpleforabby on Tuesday??
 
 
For those of you who are newer around here, every surgery day lots of our family, friends, and even people we don't know personally wear purple in support for Abby and take selfies to post on Facebook.  Purple is her favorite color, and she absolutely LOVES seeing pictures of people dressed up in purple to show their love to her.  Her favorites are the animals wearing purple!  Those often bring the first smiles we see post-op!  We will seriously look at all of the pictures multiple times while in the hospital.  The more creative, the better!  They seriously bring her SO much joy, which is what it's all about when you go through what she has to endure.
 
If you post a selfie, be sure to hashtag it #purpleforabby so that it is easy for us to find it later.  That way, all I have to do is search that hashtag and all of the pictures come up.  If anyone asks you what the purple is about, feel free to share about our brave girl's journey, or send them to the blog. Thanks everyone!

Purple is--was--my Grampa's favorite color, too!! He lost his looong battle with cancer on March 19th. Whenever I see the color purple, it immediately makes me think of Grampa.... And now, my two-year old niece, "Opal", will proudly tell you.... "My favorite color purple!!" ;)
