Some pictures to share

Tommy FINALLY got to see Lindsay. She was in the middle of her physical therapy session but we definitely took a break from it to capture this very special moment for us AND for Tommy. You could see the grin behind his mask. Too cute!
Tommy, proud momma Colleen, and nurse Margaret.

Happy Birthday nurse Lindsay!!!!!

She looks so BEAUTIFUL! I have been reading your blog all morning.One of my preschool students brother is at the same hospital you are. He was born in April with HLHS, maybe him and Lindsay can become buddies. His name is Mason Slater. Thank you for sharing you princess' story may God continue to bless your family greatly.

Love In Christ

Wow! What a special (and almost surreal) moment between Tommy & Lindsay! I had read that poem on Tommy's care page and bawled... and I don't even know him! Anyway, Lindsay looks so good - I can't believe how alert she looks and she is even able to wear real clothes?!?! Unbelievable that she just had a heart transplant less than a week ago! Prayers that things do "just continue to get better"!

I'll be happy to get bracelet(s) out to you...the link is hard to find now because when you click on the pink bracelet next to this post, you have to scroll way down past the event announcements that are above it! me at: and tell me how many you want and then send me a check made out to the Lindsay Dean Heart Fund (this is a donation, so just choose what you want to send..we are happy with a dollar! :)) at: Elaine Burdick

Now that I have sold a bracelet today...on to Lindsay and Tommy!

I can't explain it, but I just couldn't WAIT to see Tommy and Lindsay completely precious. Two miracles together...we are so thankful. As I said on Tommy's blog...Prom King and Queen someday???? oops...guess it would be Prince and Princess, huh? :)

I can't believe Lindsay is even in real clothes...somehow that just makes it more amazing...none of this laying around in a hospital gown for the Princess!

I read the prayer from Stephanie on Tommy's blog and just bawled...what a gift she has. It was so perfect...thank you Stephanie, from everyone who loves Lindsay and Tommy...I am going to save it forever.

Have a wonderful day, Suzie and JR...although I can't imagine how much better it can get for you! We love you to pieces,

Elaine and Bill
