Home Sweet Home

....well, almost home....We are actually camping out at Meme and Grump's for a few days, but we are out of the hospital!  The entire last week is a big blur to us right now, and we are so thankful that we are over the big hurdles.  Today was an incredibly long day for Frances, with needle sticks, suture removals, and not really knowing if we would get to go home.  Now its time to rest and recover. 

Let's get the heck out of this place!
We will see the pediatrician tomorrow and follow-up with the cardiologist next week, as they continue to monitor Frances' progress.  She has been so brave and has come so far in so little time.  I can't imagine having such a major surgery and being such a trooper like she has been!

PS- Today is Frances' 6 month birthday!  It seems impossible that she has been here for half of a year.  We were hoping we would avoid taking her 6 month picture in the hospital and we did! 
So I have some bags under my eyes....Looking pretty good!
We will be flying somewhat under the radar for a little bit and have to be extra careful about germs, but we will continue to post updates when we can.  Will and I can't thank everyone enough for the prayers and encouragement we have received during the last week.  Reading all your messages really helped get us through!


  1. Glad y'all are (almost) home!

  2. Hi - you don't know me but I am a friend of Elizabeth Snodgrass and came through your blog through her's. I just had to comment on how PRECIOUS your little girl is! I have a 15 month old little girl and can't imagine what you and she have been through but I have def been thinking about you all. Keep up the good work Frances!
