A Regular Room WOO HOO!

This is as close to normal as we have gotten with Lindsay. The move into a regular room came as quite a shock to Suzie when she and I arrived at the hospital this morning. I can't even begin to discribe to you what it's like to watch my daughter care for this special gift from God. The look in her eyes when she holds her or just stands by her bedside is the most precious sight I've ever seen. Lindsay has to feel how much she is loved.


OK, little Lindsay will be three weeks old on Wed. and grandma finally gets to hold her. What a thrill it was for me. Tonight I fed her and she took the whole bottle, which means we didn't have to tube feed her. We've heard a rumor that the chest drainage tube might be removed tomorrow. If so, she'll be much more comfortable and that much closer to coming home.
What a wonderful day we had today!
Heart Hugs,
Linda

Wow!! The miracle of prayers. She looks so good for having heart surgery 3 weeks ago. We hope the best for her and your family and we hope she will be in your home in no time flat. Truly, what a miracle she is.

We are so glad that Lindsay is doing so well. She looks beautiful. I must say, that bunny blanket looks nice in those pictures!! Alli will be excited to see that!
Your Mom was right, seeing you (& JR) cre for Lindsay while I was there was a treat. It makes me thank God for putting the bug in my ear to visit on my trip to Troy. Continue to stay strong, Lindsay knows how blessed God has made her with her parents and family.

All our love & prayers,

Dan, Maggie Ben & Alli

Lindsay looks so great. I just love seeing the new pictures and reading the updates. It is even better when you can see the power of prayer in action. I'm hoping she may make it home before we head back to Arkansas. I would love to meet your angel in person! I'll keep praying.
