MIRACLE! Miracles do happen!...again. Lindsay was proof of that today with all of you wonderful people on her side and of course the mighty power of GOD. He did it again! Our lives were crushed yesterday with the news and this morning was grim. Well, I will just say it was awful for us. The unknown is a horrible feeling especially when it concerns your baby and it is totally out of your control. She is the strongest person that we know and are still amazed on what her tiny body has been through in just this last week.
Details of the surgery were wonderfully explained by Elaine. Dr. Devaney was very pleased and pleasantly surprised with the increase in her oxygen saturation after the operation. He put in a different shunt called the central shunt. I still have yet to look that up. :-) He even said that her heart function looks like it actually improved immediately! The operation was a success and she should be good to go for another 2-4 months before they decide on doing the Hemi again. He was so confident in the success that he went ahead and closed her chest! She will undergo a few heart caths before the Hemi to determine if she can withstand it. If then they decide that she wouldn't be able to tolerate the surgery because of the increase in pulmonary blood flow, they would put her on the transplant list. I want to thank you all, once again, for the continued support and prayers sent our way for Lindsay and our family. We feel the power of your prayers and they give us the strength to make it through this amazing hurdle in our lives. We are so humbled by the support from all over the country and trust me when I say, we feel the love! We are exhausted beyond belief, so we are going to take a short nap and then off to see our princess. Speaking of Princess.....the nurses think that as well. Just check out the photo above with her crown on. We took this one last night and the other is of Lindsay after surgery today. The nurses decided to make Lindsay a crown because of the rank in royalty that she is prooving that she is. :-)
A very thankful,
Suzie and Jr
