Houston we have a heartbeat!

I apologize for not updating sooner, all they told us before was that "everything was going well."  We just got a great update though, Grace is off of bypass and her heart is beating on it's own!  Praise the Lord!!!  They are now just closing up her chest, measuring pressures, oxygenation, etc.  The surgeon is suppose to come talk with us in the next 30-45 min, then they will take Grace to the CICU, get her situated, and then, Lord willing, we will get to see our little honey!  Will you please pray for our hearts when we do get to finally see Gracie?  It is really hard to see your little angel in that condition, you know?  Thank you!

A couple of people have asked about what our shirts say, so here is a picture of it.  We had them made for the Buddy Walk in 2012 (it's the Down Syndrome walk).  "Gracie Doo" is our families nickname for Grace (in addition to Kitty :-).

GO GRACIE!!!!! Still praying, and sending you thoughts like hugs and warm quilts to get you through this day! She is SO strong, and yet, our God is even stronger!
