Update on surgery

It's 5:00pm and the Dr. just came in....he used that "fantastic" word again and that Lindsay's doing great. He went ahead and closed her chest after fixing the shunt and said that will never have to be fixed again. He mentioned other bumps in the road may happen, but this one's fixed.

He also said that they knew right away that Lindsay has a good heart (even if it's half) because it started pumping right away.

I hope to do pictures when we're allowed in and it's going to be exciting to have her chest closed.

Heart hugs and continued prayers.

Linda

Living in the country land of dial up; I was not able to send a message earlier today. But your little Lindsay was in my thoughts all day. So happy to hear that the Dr used that word "fantastic" again.
Hold each other and keep strong. Take care.
love,
Missie

I just caught up on the last couple days. Connected to DSL, so haven't had internet. So very happy Lindsay is doing well.

Gotta stop making me cry at work! Looking forward to the next round of pictures. Hope you are all able to get a good night's sleep tonight knowing that she's all closed up.
Much love, Debbie (and Rick)

So glad I'm not the only stalker in the group! We're all just so drawn to your family and to sweet little Lindsay. Having one of my own, I'm so inspired by your beautiful "miracle baby". Thank God she is in such good hands. This blog is just amazing and I'll continue to check it faithfully and pray for your family often.

Dear Suzie, Jr, and Lindsay,

I am a Stalker also, but the only problem is at work today, we are doing construction on the High School and the excavation company cut yes "CUT" the internet fiber so I haven't been able to look all day. Was about to freak out than I get home and my computer would come up here either. So finally it came up and see what I missed. I am so glad the Dr fixed the problem and she is doing good. I know she is strong I could tell when I saw her on Saturday, stay strong Mom and Dad she is just testing you.

Love you lots,

Steve and Tina
