Living proof of the power of prayer..........

A little surprise for Lindsay from desk clerk Leslie.
And so was this!








I will just tell you that she looks fabulous! She is still a little out of it because of still being on a little morphine but hopefully tomorrow that will be removed after the other two chest tubes come out. Also, think her arterial line will be removed as well. JR was holding her tonight and from a laying down position, she sat right up! We couldn't believe it. It only lasted a few seconds and then she folded right back into Daddy's arms. She is all over having her pacifier in her mouth and we even got a few waves from her today too. Oh, and Daddy got a little smile.;-) So sweet. So, another exciting day tomorrow and then maybe back to moderate care or the floor by Wednesday or Thursday! Can you believe that???
A very special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Lindsay's heart sister, Carlee, and to a very special heart mom friend of mine, Rebecca Butcher.
Heart Blessings~

WOW is all I can say...so amazing. I pray for Lindsay everyday. She is such a fighter! This makes 6 OHS's for her in less than a year I believe. She is an awesome inspiration, and so are you! You and your husband are AMAZING heart parents!
GOD BLESS! So excited that Lindsay will get a little belated birthday party at HOME!!

I fell asleep and half woke up with a burning desire to come and check on the princess... and I'm too tired to be very coherent, but I just wanted to say... Amen! She is gorgeous and yes, she is a living testament to the power of prayer, patience, faith, and down-right determination! These pictures are just about the best thing I've seen in a long, long time! I'm just so happy for you all that I don't even know how to put it into words! Goodnight, and I'll look forward to more good news and beautiful pictures tomorrow! Lots of love... Danielle

Wow, what a fabulous way to end my day...with pictures of the Princess in Mommy's and Daddy's arms! (I do see some "morphine eyes" in that shot with Mom, ha ha.)

And the binky... you know if she's sucking the binky that she has her priorities straight and is well down that road to recovery!

She's an absolute miracle, and we'll keep those prayers coming!

Much love,

Michelle

What a great way to wake up... and see her in her Mommy and Daddy's arms! Everyone needs a good cry to start the day, right?? Amaizing!!
We will constantly pray for her... our prayer is for no rejection and safe and swift healing! What a fighter she is! She may be a Princess, but she has 2 big brothers and is one tough cookie, too!!
My two little Doctor's sons wanted to know what they did with her other heart. William wishes he could see it. Garrett thinks they are looking at it in a lab to check it out. Both were very worried about her stitches... (as if that is her only pain!).
Praying for a wonderful week!!! Happy early birthday Princess!!!
love,
steph, Dr. Bob, Dr. Garrett, Dr. William and Maggie

no weaning off the PRINCESS, as one blogger said, that is her name for LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rachel Dominguez said...

WOW! She looks so great! What an amazing Miracle that God provided to Lindsay! I cannot express how great it feels (even for a stranger) that Lindsay is doing so well. I believe with all my heart and soul that all of our prayers have been heard and that Lindsay has been given a second chance to have such a wonderful life.

I cannot believe that they are already thinking of moving her to moderate care. That is just Amazing!

I am sooooooo soooooo happy for you guys!

PS...Love the pictures.

Leslie said...

She is ABSOLUTELY beautiful! :-) :-)

The PRINCESS looks great!!! I can't believe how quick most of the tubes and lines came off her. Enjoy cuddling her up close now. She's earned the title of Princess!

Tiffany Lockette said...

The princess looks absolutely amazing. How precious that you both got to hold her. I bet you will cherish that particular moment above all. She is such a cutie pie. What a little trooper she is. Please tell her I am so very proud of her. I know I am a complete stranger to you but I feel like I know you guys already. What a special surprise from her nurse. How awesome of her to put up the decorations for your little princess. Happy Birthday Lindsay...you are a true gift from God.
