Lindsay is getting active!!

Lindsay and Missie
Lindsay and Jessica

We even got to take a stroller ride!! First time out of her room since November!!!!!

Our happy girl with her new toy.

She is getting bigger everyday! She is now 6.2 kilos (multiply that by 2.2 and you will have pounds) and 67 centimeters long!!!!! Her two bottom teeth are also starting to pop through. They have been trying to make their appearance for about 2 weeks now but haven't broken the skin yet. Tylenol is helping with the pain.

Last week before I left to go home for the weekend, I finally got her new toy put together. Yes, she now has an exersaucer and just loves that thing! I get tears in my eyes when I watch her play in it. She is soooo happy and loves to look at herself in the mirrors. It is like looking into a child's eyes on Christmas morning. Oh, the best thing ever!!!! I have also included some pictures of Lindsay with her visitors from yesterday. Jessica and Missie came to visit for the afternoon. Mom also enjoyed a nice meal with them other than one at the RMH! Thank you girls!!!
Lindsay has had a few tense moments this week but nothing crazy and the main thing is that everything is just fine now and is as happy as pie. She will have her blood draw tomorrow and Rituxin will probably be at the beginning of the week. Please pray that the Rituxin and CellCept combined together is the magic ticket! This weekend is my husband's 9 1/4 birthday. If you are confused, he is a leap year baby. :-) Anyway, all of my boys will be here with me in A2 this weekend and look forward to us all being together for his birthday. JR will then stay through the middle of next week with the princess and I will head home to take care of some things at work and spend some more time with the boys. It worked so well last weekend knowing that someone was here with her. Because of that, I could totally focus on what I wanted to do at home without worry about her every second that I was away. So, we will try it again! Thanks honey. Teamwork!!!
Also, please keep Gracie Gledhill in your prayers. She is still on ECMO and is struggling. Hope is still alive though as from the recent post, her heart may be beating more now than the day before. As I wrote on her blog, Dear heart.....Pump baby Pump!!!!!!!
Oh, these babies are so fragile. Enjoy the new photos of the princess!!
Heart Blessings~

So happy to hear that Lindsay is doing well!!! Praying for the meds to be the right mix and be perfect for her...just waiting for that miraculous day she gets her new heart! I can't imagine the mix of feelings you must be experiencing and how trying that must be..just know that I am praying for all of you! I can't see any pics...doesn't look like any got loaded. Will have to keep checking though because I can't wait to see pics of her having a wonderful time in her new toy!!

Oh... aren't exersaucers great?!

I'm praying that rituxin and the cellcept are a magic combo for Lindsay. We won't know until mid March if all these treatments are working on Owen. I'm praying that there is a small change... any change... change brings hope!

We're always checking on our Lindsay bug and praying that her miracle heart will come soon.

I know how difficult this time is- you can do it!!!

That's our baby! If anyone can be stubborn and fight, a Lumbard can--ha,ha. Miss our weekly visits and cuddle time. The definition of faith is firmly believing in something you can't see or prove. We have faith for Lindsay and all of the heart babies. Prayers are going up. Lots of love to you all/AuntC and UncleRoc

I just love the new pics. She is so dang cute! Hopefully the Rituxin/CellCept combo will do the trick. We'll be hard at work this weekend, but please wish JR a very happy 9 1/4 birthday from us!

Lindsay looks so much better now than when I was there. It's so good to see her learning and interacting with her environment. I remember when Natalie was able to get out of her room and we walked down the halls, she had her head cranked as far as she could to see everything she was passing by. I still think of you and pray for you. The wait has been long, but I'm glad that Lindsay will be healthy and be able to wait for the "perfect" heart for her. I'm praying for your "mommy heart" too that can stress when you know more than you want sometimes. Hang in there.

"He (God) gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power...Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." Isaiah 40:29 & 31

HI Suzie and family, the little princess sure is cute,,biggie girl in her saucer and all. Pics are great, I wish I could get up there soon, we're going to try. I loved having the boys again this week!! We all had a good time, other kids missed them last wk., and enjoyed them alot the last few days. We will be praying for the meds to continue working, and for Gracie as well. Enjoy your "guys" this week-end!!
