  1. SO, SO THANKFUL: Our little social bug Katie is on the mend and is happy again...They had their appointment back at the hospital...This time she enjoyed some of her favorite things:
therapy dogs
the library
lobby fish tank
dancing clowns
“storybook fairy” (little old lady/pink princess gown/crown)
2. so, so thankful for doctors...The main reason for visiting: to see Dr. K, the doctor who has bee n trusted on ALL her surgeries (the first @ a mere six pounds...a very tiny heart, indeed). Dr. K has placed her heart in his hands,
literally--he certainly isn't 'just another guy in a white lab coat'! (The heart surgeons are like Elvis — everyone knows when they’re in the building!)

Thank you, Jesus, for providing Dr. K the knowledge and expertise in caring for Katie!

Surprise (and joy) overtook Katie as her mommy snapped this precious photo:


3. so, so thankful...Katie's incision, post-infection, is continuing to look better and may not require stitches

4. so, so, thankful....she may not have to have followup surgery to re-do the wiring around her breast bone!

5. so, so, thankful...God built an inate LOVE in us...our God such a special, saving way. We can share His love with others throughout our lives, during good and bad situations!

Jer. 33:3
"Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." Blessings,

Much to be thankful for!!! This is all such good news about Katie.

Having "one of those days" myself. You can read all about it on my blog. I was almost too embarrassed to share what I'd done but thought, why not? These people are my friends.

I think.

LOL Seriously, I cannot believe what I did.
