Whew... After all of the craziness over the past few days, I think things are starting to go in the right direction. Teagan has been able to rest and keep most of her feeds down the last 2 days and her sats are improving without oxygen! The surgeons have agreed to call off the idea of doing a heart cath tommorrow and if everything continues to go well today- we get to go home tommorrow!!!!!!
As I looked back over the last few posts I can't help but feel bad about how negative they sound. Things have been so stressful and not going the way we wanted and its easy to get stuck in that mode. I thought it might be nice to write about some of the things I'm thankful for in the midst of all of our frustrations.
I am thankful for a heavenly father who continues to be faithful in healing Teagan and giving Trent and I the strength to get through each day.
I am thankful for the wonderful 'heart moms' like Katie, Angie, Mimi and many others who have given me so much encouragement and been willing to listen to me complain and vent about all that is happening.
I am thankful for the strong, brave and beautiful little girl that Trent & I have been given and couldn't imagine life without.
I am thankful for an amazing son who makes me laugh, cry & beam with pride when he shows me his new 'tricks' or kisses his 'ligglely' on the head and 'keeps her safe.'
I am thankful for a wonderful husband who has done nothing but make me laugh (outloud at times) and been so strong through this whole thing.
I am thankful for our wonderful families who have prayed, encouraged, and held us up when we were about to fall apart.
I am thankful for our wonderful moms who take care of our sweet 'Doogie' while we're away and make him feel happy, safe, and worry free!
I am thankful that even if Teagan's chest wound does leave a scar atleast the shape is appropriate- a heart!
I am thankful for the Dr.'s and nurses here at Children's who have done so much for Teagan and for us. We couldn't imagine life without her, and they help make that possible!
