Before surgery!

MUSC has been absolutely wonderful! All of her nurses have been so kind and so knowledgable.  Her heart pillow has a purpose - to help ease the pain when she is coughing.  Last night her sweet nurse, Stephanie, wrote a note on the pillow to Leiney Grace.

Post Op Day 1
Today was a good day.  Medically she is doing very well.  She slept most of the day and has not wanted to drink anything since her earlier vomitting episode.  Hoping and praying that tomorrow she will be more awake and more eager to drink and eat -  both being a part of the ticket home!

Please pray for a baby girl named Brinley.  She is 5 days old and had surgery today on her heart which lasted 11 hours.  It did not go as well as they had hoped.  She is a very sick little baby and is just a few beds down from Leiney Grace.  To make this difficult situation even worse, Brinley's dad is scheduled to be deployed Friday to a training area in the US and then to Kuwait.  Please pray that the US military - not sure of the branch - would show some compassion in this terribly sad situation!

Yippee, she looks great!! Glad to see her pre-surgery smile and know that the happy juice helped ease her nerves. We loved MUSC and know that she is in loving hands down there. If you are in 7C and Brenna,Caroline or Ms Barbara happen to be assigned to LG please tell them that Abby Grace sends a hug and a kiss :) They were by far her favorites.
Looks like you all are doing pretty well. Hope you are able to get some rest. If you need anything please let us know.
May God's healing hand continue to touch LG and Brinley. And may the Lord make way for her father to stay home while she recovers. Please let her know that we will be praying for Brinley :)
