Almost there!

We got the official call today...we're going home!!! I can't believe it is actually happening. We have a few things that have to be done first. Annabelle has to get the RSV shot and we're still waiting on her pump to arrive (for her g-tube feeds). There are some other things that all have to be taken care of first, but we're almost there! We'll be sure to post tonight to tomorrow some pictures of her at home! Please pray for a safe trip for us. God is so good!

What a great feeling to get the call! I know you're so excited! Congratulations for hanging in there for the past 5+ weeks. Praying for a safe trip home and a good transition to life at home without the 24-hour nurse care!

We are so excited you are all going home! It will be so great to be in your own home. No one will knock on the door as they are walking right on into the room. :) It will be great! We pray for a safe trip and a smooth transition. We hope you are all waking up in your own beds tomorrow morning.
Love, Joe and Kim

Congratulations on getting your beautiful baby girl home! My husband and I are expecting our first child, a son to be named Montgomery, just next month. He too has been diagnosed with HLHS and will undergo the Norwood procedure just days after his birth. I am so hopeful after seeing your story that everything will turn out just fine for all of us! If it is alright, I might need some advice when he gets here, by then you will be a pro! If you or your family needs anything, please feel free to e-mail and let me know, I will do whatever I can to help during this very stressful time! God bless!

Love,
Sierra

Hello Rebecca, Scott, Wyatt and Annabelle! I praise God for all of the blessings He has provided for your family, and for all of those who are praying for you...it is as much of a blessing to us to see your family able to go home!! Our prayers will continue, and we look forward to seeing your beautiful faces soon! With Christ's love, Dene Johnston and family

Yay! I am so glad you guys get to finally come home. She is so beautiful, I can't wait to meet her in person. Let me know if I can help with anything. Wyatt would totally fit in at my house with all the boy things. So let me know if you would like for him to come over and play so he can have some great boy time and you can have some quiet time with Annabelle. Take care, Jenesse

congratulations on going home!! That is so exciting. We had our little Bela girl on Friday and are awaiting her surgery. It is scheduled for this Friday. She has been doing amazingly well so far and is proving to be such a strong little girl. we are being blessed. I'm so glad to hear that Annabelle is doing so good and gets to go home. we hope and pray for the same outcome for our sweet girl. It's so nice to know that there are people out there who know just what we're feeling and going through..you give us so much hope. Thank you, and have fun loving on her!!
