Photos that I promised





Here is Lindsay's monitor this morning when we walked in. The concerning number in the operating room was the blue one at the bottom. This was only in the low 60's and Dr. Devaney was pretty concerned about that....but look at it now! 78. WHOO HOO!! Yes, we all know that she is on "Lindsay" time. Blood pressure and heart rate are perfect, for her, too. Heart rate is the top green number and BP are the red numbers. Cole wanted to see Lindsay up close today. He is so brave. He is looking at her with her chest open!! He loves her so much and can't wait until we can take her home. Doctors said today that they will probably close her chest on Sunday. They want to give her a little more time to loose some more of the extra fluid around her lungs. ... and her poor little head!!! Her color overall is awesome but still a little cold. One of our favorite nurses, Jen, was working today so it was good to see her again. They are all so wonderful, it is hard to say that you have a favorite, but extra special when you get to know them so well. Tonight we are headed back up to spend some quality time with her. Cole is all geared up with his Leapster and there apparently is a Star Wars movie on tonight. So, he should be good and entertained. I will update you again tomorrow. Please pray for a uneventful night and that Lindsay keeps going strong like she has been. We are so proud of you baby girl!
Love, Suzie

You are an amazing family..........I am so proud to know you. My heart aches to see your princess lying there, but I know all things happen for a reason and the ugly will lead to the beauty. Your strength is mirrored in her. Congratulations on the hurdles crossed, the strength gained and displayed by all of you (even Cole and Cruz) and the way you've reached out to all of us. xoxox Kyle

I'm so glad that she is doing well after surgery. My heart hurts to see her hooked up to all of those machines but I know she is in good hands because of her wonderful family and great big brothers! I hope Cruz is feeling better too. You have such strength that I truly admire.

Thinking and praying for you always...Love, Dawn
