Pretty in......PINK!!!!!

Normal numbers!
What a trooper! All of her drips are on very minimal settings and the vent setting is already down to 60 from 100.

The nurses (and doctors!) just LOVE her!!!!


PINK! PINK! PINK!



MORE PINK. What better color for a princess!
Needless to say she looks incredible! We are back at the RMH and going to bed. Nighty Night!
Love, Suzie

Congratulations!!!! What a wonderful gift!! I don't know you but your girl has touched my heart. I want this heart to take so wonderful so she can live the way Gracie Girl wasn't able to. Lindsay I think Gracie Girl is cheering you on from up above.

Sleep well with wonderful dreams of a long future with your daughter. Recover your bodies and spirits as your princess sleeps to recover also. This is a beautiful story of unconditional love and triumph. What a team of family, friends, bloggers and medical personnel can do together and bring a miracle. My thoughts are also with the donor family. May they feel some peace and solace in their ultimate selfless act of choosing to share life in their time of tragedy.
Thank you for sharing your experience with all of us. Perhaps it will help others to truly understand what really is important in life as they go through their daily activities.
Congratulations!
From a friend of Kyle

I have no words!! I have been praying for you since the day you were born! (To Grandma Linda- I am absolutely estatic for you and your family!! I'm happy that I learned it was you that I talked to in Walgreen's that day! I'm glad I could put a name to the prayers I sent up!) I can imagine how your night went...I would wake up and look for each and every update!! I remember when my own daughter had had her repair done. When she was fixed, she was so rosey! What an awesome feeling!! Still praying and pulling for this special family!
