Gracie and her Grandmas

Little Gracie got to have some Grandma time today and she really relaxed and enjoyed herself.



We were told today that Gracie's first procedure will be next week some time. It may be on Tuesday, but no earlier than that. She will have a Blalock-Taussig Shunt surgically installed between the aorta and the pulmonary artery, as well as a little procedure done on her atrial septum. It is the first surgery in a series of 3 surgeries called a fontan procedure. The second surgery will be at the 4-6 month timeframe and the third somewhere around three years.

Annie was discharged today and is doing really well. We are really enjoying our time visiting with Gracie are grateful that we have been able to really enjoy these first few days with her. As you can see from the pictures she is just a little doll.
