Well- it's thanksgiving. Me and the girl are hanging out watching the parade. Yesterday I asked about a "day pass" to go home for Thanksgiving. He said he would have said yes, but two days ago her heart rate sped up a little bit.
She has been doing phenomenally and they hope to have her drug levels at a therapeutic dose so we can go. Mia's vocal chords are still swollen from being intubated for so long that while her oral feeds are improving, will be loving her NG tube for awhile.
Now on to what I really wanted to blog about:
I couldn't be more Thankful for anything this year! What a year/month/moment of blessings. I prayed so often for this one thing- and I was blessed with it. I am so so Thankful for my loving Father in Heaven who answered my prayer. I love this little girl and am so thankful to be her momma. Everyday I hold my hand over her chest and feel her angel heart beat. I think of her donor- and the incredible gift that was given to Mia. I don't know anything about this family except that I love them and I am so grateful to them!
John and I were getting ready to send our thank-you letter to the family and thought I would send along a few comments from this blog. If you would like to post a brief comment to the family- I will compile some and include it with my letter. Mia is so loved and the heart that lives on in Mia has been loved by so many- by all of you.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! And I hope you all have something wonderful to be grateful for this day.
eat some turkey for me ;-)
