Basketball Pictures and an Update

Here are a few pictures from the games on Saturday. Garrett fell and hurt his knee (skinned it) so he sat on the bench with an ice pack. The first picture of Grace, the ball is actually coming off her face. She went for a steal and the ball went off her nose and into her hands. She kept playing. Her eyes were watering, but she told the coach she was ok and wanted to stay in while she was running down the court. The second shot is another steal that went alot smoother.

We went to UAMS and Childrens on Friday. We received encouraging news. The cardiologist told us the left ventricle has continued to grow at a consistant rate and he thinks our child will only have to have one heart surgery instead of the three. Of course many things can change that, but he seemed really encouraged by what he was seeing.

We also toured the Heart Station at Childrens. We both feel better now that we know the flow of things. We got all of our questions answered and have a contact person with a phone number and email if we have any more. I am also glad I saw the set up of the ICU before it is my child there. It was overwhelming to see the babies with all those machines, but when I looked in one of the pods there was a daddy holding his baby and it really calmed me.

Please continue to keep us in your prayers. We leave for Little Rock in 3 weeks, and the baby should be born in 3 weeks and 1 day. I want as many people praying for this little one as possible. I firmly believe that prayers is helping this baby and keeping me sane right now.
