Update on Hope

Hope, Pre-surgery, Just chillin'

Hope, Post-surgery, with her pretty pink bow

Thank you everyone for all your thoughts and prayers for Hope today. As Aunt Em as said, surgery went well for Hope today. The surgeons were very happy with how everything went. Hope is resting sound tonight with some morphine to help with her pain. She got a little too warm after surgery and that caused her heartrate to be a bit elevated but once they got her cooled off a bit she settled right down. Everyone thought she might get a bit puffy (one of the side effects of the surgery) but so far she is not showing any signs of this. All in a all a great day for Hope - one more (Huge) step closer to coming home.

As you can see from the picture Hope was not about to let surgery hold her back from being stylish. Erin (one of her very nice nurses) made her a pretty pink bow to wear while she is recovering. Thank you Erin!


  1. So cute and cuddly. We are so thankful the surgery went well. I have posted comments before and all did not go well, so I hope this one does. We thank the Lord everything went well, and pray for good progress.

  2. God has once again taken care of the little angel named "Hope".
    Our prayers are with you--Grandma and Grandpa Holtz give Hope a hug for us.
