The rest of the day went well

Aunt Retta surprised Lindsay today with a visit. Thank you so much for coming to see Lindsay.



The Dean's drove over today, JR's mom, sister Deb and Samantha and JR's brother, Ken and son Zach.

This company really helps pass the day for Suzie and JR.

Little Lindsay's tummy is still swollen, however she's eliminating as they would like her to. So, that's good news! We'll take all of that we can. She'll have another little battle scar on her chest from the chest tube. The nurse told us tonight that adult patients say that that hurts worse than the open heart incision.

Suzie and JR received a surprise from Amanda and Ryan today with a fruit bouquet. I'll tell you that Terry family keeps us feed. Suzie loves her fruit and some of it even had chocolate on it.

If Lindsay is doing ok, I plan on driving to Kalamzoo Sunday for my friend's (Pam) mother's funeral. She passed away yesterday a.m. I so want to be with her for that special time. This has been so hard for the two of us when we've wanted to be there for each other, but knew we were where we were suppose to be. I can't tell you the times Pam would just call and pray with me.

Well we had a late night visit with Lindsay and they sedated her so she would have a peaceful evening. It's amazing how the nurses recognize their pain, because after all these little babies can't cry while they're on the ventilator.

Hopefully we'll have a recovery day tomorrow.

Heart Hugs,
Linda

Hi Suzie, Jr and Lindsay,

The Groulx Clan arrived at about 10:00 am they now hold the record 14 hours oh my god with 3 kids,under 7 years old and 2 dogs. They were all pretty wiped out today so tomorrow we are going to grandmas lake. We have been checking as often as possible and am thrilled to see that all was well yesterday and hope today went as well. We are always praying for Lindsay's strength and hope you are both staying strong. I know it is hard.

Remember we all love you guys more than you will ever know and if you need anything at all please call us.

Have a great night and keep smiling.

Love ya,

Steve and Tina

What a beautiful little girl Lindsay is. I am praying for ALL of you daily. I don't know if Suzie will remember me, but she booked a trip for my husband and I to Hawaii for spring break. She told me about Lindsay at that time. I have been following daily-please know thoughts and prayers go out to you many times during the day. Jan Kiino
