Enjoying the sunshine!

Finally, we've had some good weather here in lovely ol' Ohio! Its been in the mid 70's all week, and I finally feel comfortable taking Vaeh out for short periods! In the picture above, Vaeh is taking over the wheel for Daddy in his big truck! I don't want her out too much, with the surgery now less than two weeks away. Still trying to avoid her coming down with anything. She is such an outdoor person. She smiles every time I open the door or the windows up, and gives me that look like "are we going out there?!" Especially when its time to go pick big sis up from preschool, her little legs start moving like crazy! When she finally is able to start walking, I'm going to have fun keeping her inside!

Just to update on all of our little heart friends: Elijah is doing well recovering at home! According to his mommy, he's having a little separation anxiety but who can blame the little guy! Emma, Addisyn, Ashcer & Karly are also all doing well & recovering quickly. Isaac just had a heart cath & MRI yesterday & all went well there, too! Please keep Stephanie, aka "The Champ" in your prayers. She just had open heart on Wednesday & is having trouble getting off the pacemaker. Overall she is doing fairly well, but her little heart doesn't want to beat on its own yet. So could you all say a little extra prayer for her, and all of these little miraculous wonders!

What a sweetheart! She is just so precious, Tina...and that determined look on her face, like "I'm ready to drive!" Ha! I just love it....

I'll be praying that Vaeh stays well over the next couple of weeks. I know how hard it can be to keep all of those germs away from active little girls!

You are continually in my thoughts and prayers as you prepare for this surgery. I'm so glad we've had the chance to "chat" and get to know each other better. I know that nothing I can say will make any of this easier....but please know that if you need to vent, I'm here.

Lots of Love & Heart Hugs,

Wendy (& Emma, too!)

Adorable! I'll be keeping you guys in my thoughts. Hoping the days up to Nevaeh's surgery are uneventful.

We'll take some of that 70s weather! I'm wondering if we're just going to skip spring this year here in MN? UG!

I know what you mean about not wanting to take your baby anywhere so close to surgery. I was the same way with Elijah. I swear, we haven't been outside in like 6 months, with the terribly cold winter and then pre-surgery quarantining and then surgery and recovery and now we still have cold weather!

Well Vaeh sure is a cutie pie! We'll say prayers for good health and for peace for you guys these next few weeks. xoxoxo
