Remembering Sweet Annabelle

Some of you out there know that I have been watching and learning about HLHS through little Annabelle Butcher's blog. With a very heavy heart, I am sad to say that Scott, Rebecca, and Wyatt lost there little angel today. I cannot even express to you how many questions that I now have and cannot even fathom what questions that the Butcher's might need the answers to. Needless to say, it has been a very rough evening for me. However, knowing and believing that she is now a very healthy little girl and in GOD's hands is very comforting even though that I wish for the family that they had little Annabelle to tuck into bed tonight. I know that every little human being is different but a parent should never have to go through this. This is our biggest fear but this family is a HUGE inspiration to us in having comfort that thier little angel is in good hands now. The Butcher's have very strong faith and I know that they will get through just fine. I just want them to know that even though complete strangers, they will be in our hearts forever.
Someone very recent said to me, GOD needs little people in heaven too. Well, HE certainly just got a beautiful angel.

Love, Suzie

Our First U of M visit

Well, all went well at the first visit to "the BIG boys" . We were told by the pediatric cardiologist that considering the severity of her problem, Lindsay is in the best possible position for a standard procedure. That news lifted a little weight from our shoulders. We were able to meet the OB/GYN that I will be under and also see the room that I will be delivering in and where Lindsay will be taken after birth. Our next appointment is scheduled for May 9th and we will meet with the same people we just did along with the surgeon. Trust me, I have a list of questions for him/her!
Just wanted to tell everyone "thank you" for all of the thoughts and prayers thus far. We are very fortunate to have such good friends and wonderful family that we can lean on.
I will post any new developments.
Love, Suzie
