******* Four Years Ago *******

It's been four years since my little meg has had her open heart surgery. I think that was one of the longest & scariest days of our lives. 6 hours is a long time to wait to see how things will turn out. But we new she was in the best of hands, and that our heavenly father was watching over her. As you can see in the picture we had a little picture taped to her bed of her and her sister dressed as angels.After 6 and a half hours and a few set backs, we got the call to go see her in her room, she was pretty much asleep the whole day from all the medicine for the pain. But when she woke up we couldn't wait to hold her she just looked so sad. But awhile after she woke up she just wanted her blankie silly girl. (Sorry this picture is a little graphic)
Here she is free of all her tubes, she was so happy as were we.

This was the day we got to take her home.. When we woke up that morning they scared us by telling us that they might have to cut her back open and put a permanent pace maker in to make her heart beat at a normal pace, but after they took her for a few tests they came back in and said we could take her home. We were so excited:):):):)

This is my SUPER GIRL today, strong & healthy getting ready to celebrate her 5Th birthday in just a few weeks.

I am so grateful for all the doctors that helped fix my little Megan's broken heart

That just made me tear up a little. It's so nice to see good outcomes in the heart world. I have been worrying a lot the last couple of days so thanks for that! I've not sure I know what surgery she had? You'll have to come over and visit and we can talk. Anyway, gotta love the 'supergirl' costume, Jerzi has it too!! (o and for us, that picture was not graphic at all, have you looked at baby Grants blog lately???)

I think that you are both super strong! I cannot even imagine how scary and hard all of that must have been. I'm so glad that she is so healthy and that her heart story has a happy ending....so many others don't. So much to be grateful for......

I'm so glad that she is o.k. What a horrible experience to go through. It horrible when you know they are hurting and you can't stop it. She looks just like Dustin when she was a baby!!

That made me cry just remembering those days. I love little Meg more then anything and I am so happy she is well. I can't ever imagine my little girls, tayler and Meg without each other. I don't know if it;s cause i was home with Tayler during the time but i didn't remember it took 6 hrs. WOW Love you!

I remember going to see her after it was over and I bawled! You'd never know now by looking at her that she's had the surgery :) I love my Magoo! Or Megankwa!

I can't believe all you went through! Tre's stuff was overwhelming to me and that wasn't even close. I'm so thankful for doctors and surgeons as well. I'm so glad that Megan is so healthy and full of life! I'm sure you are both so much stronger after going through all that. I would love to get together with you and Misty for a GNO. Would a Friday night or Saturday night work better for you gals?
