Kate is Home!

It's hard to believe that a little girl who has such a complicated open heart surgery just two weeks ago is now home.

Remember how she looked after surgery?


This is how she looked yesterday right before being discharged:


My sister-in-law attributes her swift recovery to all the prayers that so many strangers have been saying for her. The PICU doctors predicted she wouldn't go home for at least seven weeks. Instead, she's gone home after only two weeks. It's amazing:

One of her PICU nurses came by today to say hello and was shocked to hear that Kate was going home today. I told her it was the prayer and she said Kate's story gave her goosebumps. I do not take that lightly because there are soooo many babies and children who spend time in PICU here. The part of PICU we were in was actually PCTU (Pediatric Cardiac Thorasic Unit), which means it was only for kids who had received heart surgery. When they see a child in Kate's shape, make such a dramatic turn-around and leave the the hospital WEEKS before they predicted, they are shocked.

Thank you to everyone who prayed for Kate.
