A month later...
Exactly 1 month ago this was how we were looking at our sweet girl, just hours after her 9th heart surgery.
And this is my view today, crazy hair and all :-)
Callie is doing awesome, her appetite is picking up and soon she will be returning back to school. Looking back on the past month, everything happened so fast and sometimes I think it is better that way. Your mind doesn't have time to go over all the "what if's" of all what surrounds raising a child with CHD. While Callie will be up for another surgery in about 2 yrs. we don't worry about the future. She is healthy and thriving now, which is what ultimately matters!! Having Callie has taught me a whole different way at looking at life and what is most important. We live in the now because nothing is promised in the future. I look at her and am in amazement at her life and what a blessing she is. Callie is my one forever reminder of God's constant provision in her life and ours. Knowing his plan for her is greater than we can ever dream.
