Let me tell you, these little ones are so incredibly strong. Ava is doing what she is suppose to right now. The poor little girl has been moving a lot today and opening her eyes. She has tried crying some and gagging on that darn tubing down her throat. I just want to hold her and comfort her so bad. It is crazy how much you hurt for babies when they are hurting. If only I could take it all away. She is such a trooper though and the surgeon said she is doing well for what she is going through right now. Please continue to pray for her strength and successful recovery. Now all we need is for her heart to do the work it is suppose to do for her survival, and I believe the true test will begin Friday. If her heart can not do it's task by then Dr. O'brien said it is ok, that it still is a little early and they will just keep her on ECMO and try again later. Nate took some pictures of her and we hope to post them later.
Kaden is doing well at home. He went to school today and I from what I hear enjoyed himself. He made a valentines box to collect his cards tomorrow and grandma and grandpa will help him fill out cards for his friends tonight. I wish that I could be there with him tomorrow. I am so excited for him and can not wait to hear all about it, he is such a big boy. He will be back tomorrow night...I am so excited to be able to give him hugs and kisses.
I know many of you have read Isabella's blog or heard me talk about her. Her and her family really could use your prayers, as well, right now. She has a trach and is on the vent, like Kaden. Her parents brought her up here yesterday because she was not herself. They found out that she will need another open heart surgery...she has an aneurysym on her heart and it needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. To know more you can visit her blog at www.isabellagudde.blogspot.com
Feel free to leave them a comment and let them know you are praying and thinking about them.
I just want to thank you all...again...for all of the love, support, and prayers. It really helps Nate and I to come in and read all of the positive comments left. It definately lifts our spirits to know so many people are praying for Ava. Thank you, thank you , thank you...from the bottom of our hearts.
