Heart Sisters before we even created them.......



Just by looking at this photo, I think you can figure out why I thought this was such a big deal. Can you believe this Rebecca?!!! Right next to the M-Den is Annabelle Jewelry and Accessories. So, Jr and I got out and about before our visit at the hospital with our good friend Shannon. I just had to buy a small piece of jewelry from Annabelle's store! It is even spelled the correct way! Annabelle must have had some Maize and Blue in her blood somewhere. :-)

Going back in a little while to see our princess. The big success today was getting her off her nitric!! WHOO HOO! She has had a few heart rhythm issues and on the pacer still but they are pretty confident that that will correct itself as soon as she is off of her lasix drip and won't need potassium quite so often because she is peeing almost too much! Good girl Lindsay! Otherwise she is resting comfortably and making progress. Keep praying for smooth days and we will be able to get the vent out soon. They suspect by the early part of next week. Then we can hold her again! We cannot wait for that!

Love always~

Suzie and JR

That is hysterical! Yes, they were definitely predestined to be together! I LOVE IT!!! Hey, I am a fan of the U of M fight song so I am sure Annabelle has it in her, too! I was playing it over and over earlier today and Scott was really not enjoying it while he was watching the Gamecocks play Kentucky (at least they pulled that one out)!
Praying that you get your pretty girl in your arms soon!
Love to you~ Rebecca

It was SO great to see you guys today, and to see Lindsay....just as beautiful as ever. She was obviously a little upset over the nasty loss today and getting beat by a MAC team - that little thrashing fist she made just said it all!! :-)

All of our prayers continue to be with you both for peace, comfort and strength and healing for your little angel. Get some rest tonight. HUGS.

Love,
Shannon

Hi Suzie and JR,
I am so glad to hear that Lindsay is doing so much better!!!! What an answer to prayer. We are so grateful. Now, we can't wait until your whole family is home and together again.

Tonight while I was reading the blog that horrible fight song came on. I love the new background and border but did you have to change the music too? I had to click on the mute button. Being an MSU alum, it made me get upset just like Lindsay. Tell her not to worry...Alison and Rich will get her something Spartan green to wear!! GO STATE!!!

Love you guys,

Alison and Rich

God is Good! Bless you! So glad to hear she is doing well. The Power of Prayer is a Wonderful Thing! I heard Cruz is doing well too. You are all still in my Thoughts and Prayers! Sara Dziewicki

It is awesome to see Lindsay progressing so well now! She improves so much that I think Rich Rod should learn a thing or two from Lindsay's story and take it to practice on Monday. Teach the team on how NOT to quit and on how to fight till victory....just like our song says......Hail to the victors......It should be Hail to Lindsay!! Maybe...they should take Lindsay over to Schembechler Hall since she is such a strong little girl and play her at quarterback or in place of Morgan Trent..(#14) (in case you don't know him Lindsay he is the defensive guy that is always getting beat deep and your uncle Dan and Papa are not real fond of him)... She would be a lot better than those other little girls playing out there. Geeesch! Stay strong Lindsay and we will see you soon! We love you!!

Uncle Dan, Braeden, & Camden


p.s. We love the song!! Braeden started dancing this morning when he heard it and he went and grabbed his football! how cute! He also points to the computer and says "linley" and then kisses her booboos! He loves his cousin!

LOVE Uncle Dan's idea for Michigan 's coach!

OF COURSE these have been the best 4 months of your lives...that is what makes you YOU!!! In spite of everything you have been through you would not be anywhere else...you make us so proud.

Praying always, Elaine

Stephanie Winter said...

OK prayer warriors!! Get on your knees... I just talked to Linda BRIEFLY and Lindsay has not had the best day... she needs our prayers and her Mom and Dad need us to lift them all up and give them the strength to fight this fight! That's all I know right now and I am sure someone will update us later, but pray for our Princess! Love you all, Your Prayer Partner,
Steph

Elaine said...

Thank you Steph...we will pray even harder....

Love and prayers, Elaine and Bill
