I almost forgot!!

After I posted last night, I was laying in bed when it hit me. Yesterday, June 2, 2010 was our little Charlotte Delene's "alleged" due date. Its hard to imagine after all that we have been through in the past 3 weeks, that she really wasn't even supposed to be here yet! I'm so glad that we are where we are now and not just starting the whole process.

I got to the hospital around 9:30 today to find that Charlotte was officially disconnected from her last monitors. Now we just have an IV in place until she is finished up with her last doses of antibiotic and an NG tube in her nose for whatever food is left after her attempts at bottling. FINALLY we aren't tethered to any machines!! Its so nice to be able to go and scoop her up out of bed like a normal little baby. I loves me some snuggles!

  1. Hello, my name is Heather and my daughter's name is Kaitlyn. I've talked to your husband a couple of times out at netbinders since I waitress out there. He's told me about your beautiful little girl. Kaitlyn has "Double inlet left ventricle," it's very similar to your daughters heart defect. They also call it "Single ventricle." After hearing about your daughter from your husband I ask him every single time that I see him how she is doing. I'm so glad that she is doing good. She's a little miracle and as far as I can see and read that she is very brave and determined to not give up her fight. My daughter is the same way. She just turned 2 in May and has undergone 1 heart surgery when she was 7 weeks old, another one when she was 1 year old and then she will have her 3rd surgery in just a few weeks. I know how stressful things can be and no matter how strong you can be, there are still days where you get down about things. So if you ever want to talk please dont hesitate to drop me an email or something. My email is I have your little girl in my prayers. God bless your whole family and take care!
