Healthy Heart Club, Update 1

There are few things as a parent that are as difficult as watching your daughter go through open heart surgery, especially twice. Putting her life literally in the hands of surgeons and doctors is a feeling far beyond overwhelming. Indescribable heartache.

They often say that life isn't fair and for Lucy, that statement rings true. We would give anything in the world to trade places so she never had to feel pain again. She has endured and been through so much already, it breaks our hearts to put her through it again.

Lucy is in surgery now and we are nervously waiting for updates from the rounding nurse. Every time someone walks by, our hearts sink further into our stomachs. It's going to be a long day.

And so begins the second chapter in Lucy's life. A healthy new beginning. For as much love and joy that little bug has in her big heart, she certainly deserves a healthy one.

Come back to us soon, sweet girl.

If the nurse who does rounds is Teresa, you are in good hands. She is one of my peeps and is a huge fan of our kiddos. Praying for peace for you all.
