Catching Up

Hope has been home for a few days now and I wanted to catch up with our life.  It has been wonderful with Hope home.  She has been eating better than ever and sleeping just as well.  I can't believe the difference in how she acts and how much more she smiles now that she is home.  We got home Sunday and spent a nice evening at home with Hope and the boys.  Hope has been spending some time outside because it has actually been really nice outside.  She loves being outside and I can't wait for summer to get here so she can spend more time outside.  The boys love having her home too and spend as much time as possible trying to get her to smile.

I would like everyone to say a prayer for Kylan tomorrow.  He is having his Glenn and he is a real cutie.  I met his parents, Erica and Paul, while Hope was in the hospital having her Norwood.  They are great people and wonderful parents and I know he is going to do great with his Glenn.  I will be praying for him all day and visiting his parents while we take Hope to the hospital to get a few stitches removed.  Hope had to have external stitches because the internal ones didn't heal so well after her Norwood.  They look icky, but I am hoping the scar will heal better than her first one.

I want to thank everyone that has been keeping our family in your thoughts and prayers.  God listens and I know they helped when Hope was having her surgery.  Dr. Mavroudis saw us in the waiting room when we were hanging out and he said "She looks really good...she didn't lose any development at all.  I was really worried about her in there...especially when she had problems coming off bypass."  I am so glad he didn't tell us that on the day of her surgery.  I would have been freaking out.  This shows me exactly how much God's hand has in the operating room.


  1. This brings back so many memories & gratitude. I remember feeling on top of the world bringing Josh home, new & improved! It's amazing how the Glenn improves ther overall health, strength & abilities! And just in time for spring, which is the same time we brought Josh happy for you!!!

  2. It is wonderful to hear that Hope continues to do well at home!

  3. I am so happy to see her doing so well. I am so amazed by her strength. Sending many ((hugs)) to you! God bless you.

  4. What great news. I'm going to pass on to our Sunday school class this fantastic update. Always be grateful for every day we're given with our families and loved ones, huh?

  5. I came across your blog through blog-hopping from somewhere, and wanted to tell you that you have such a cutie! Our son, Derrick, had his Glenn in January. We, too, noticed a nice difference in his appitite after surgery. What a refreshing change! :) I'm glad things went well and that you've been enjoying being home with Hope. We'll be praying for your your family and your sweet girl.

    Big heart hugs and prayers,

    PS...Beware of the over-abundance of energy that will follow! Ha! :)

  6. So glad to hear she is doing better. I will continue to pray for her.
