Not for the faint of heart

Jill's prayer bears

Jill 12 hours after surgery. Yes those are purple bows!

Jill right after surgery. Poor baby.

Today is the girls' 4 month birthday and my how they have grown! Avery is enjoying her time with Grandma and Grandpa, and Papa and NaNa are in town too! Jillian is doing well after her surgery. Dr. Tam was able to completely repair her heart so that she shouldn't need another surgery until she is in her teens or later. She spent 7 to 8 hours on the operating table, most of this time was on bypass. Because of this, she has a lot of swelling and pressure in her chest cavity. Dr. Tam tried to close her up but didn't like her pressure numbers, so he left her open to allow the swelling to go down. He hopes to close her on Saturday, but in the meantime she is covered with a sterile dressing. Her swelling is beginning to go way down, she was able to close her mouth tonight and was even sucking on her pacifier a bit. Please continue to pray for our sweet girl.
