She Continues To Amaze

For those of you who have just started reading our blog this year.  Our precious blessing who we adopted a few years ago, amazed the doctors who gave her a 30% chance of survival when she escaped death, and left the hospital five days after having major heart surgery.  The doctors were scratching there heads as they tried to figure out how her arteries had opened overnight.  It was a beautiful Miracle that the Lord allowed us to witness two years ago.  Since then she has continued to do great passing each and every milestone.  We knew she was gonna need another open heart surgery (the fontan) between 4-6 years of age so this heart cath she just had done did not come as a surprise for us.  The timing however was not the greatest. Ha! However the results of her heart cath did.  Before she went in for this procedure, the surgeon shared that they would most likely need to do some ballooning or put in a stent to help open up her pulminary arteries.  She talked about possibly needing to coil several extra blood vessels and checking her pressures.  I have to admit I was a nervous wreck.  The last time we went through this she was so fragile and she went into heart failure hours after this procedure.  I was praying that she would go in and amaze the doctors once again.  I was stunned when the doctor came out and said she looked great and that the pulminary arteries looked amazing.  They did not need to touch them, said her pressures looked great, and that they just needed to coil two of the extra blood vessels.  Could not have asked for better results.  This girl is a fighter and has endured a lot in her short years of life.  I love her to pieces and she continues to amaze us all the time.  I'm so blessed to be her mommy and marvel at all that God has done to save her precious life.  We will see Dr. Chang on Tuesday and discuss the timing of her upcoming surgery.  No doubt she will pass that one with flying colors as well :)  please continue to pray for the timing of her surgery as we wait for it and Noah's future transplant.  We are confident God has it all worked out but unfortunately we are just like those silly Israelites and forget every so often and worry, worry, worry.  Just like them we need to be bopped on the head to remind us once again.  He's never failed us.  Ha!  Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement and we apologize for not getting the chance to respond to each one but we read them all and they are so encouraging to us.
