Happy Heart Cath Day

Today was a day given away to prayer...
prayer from many of you
and definitely from our family and friends
for little ShayleeJoy.

We were at Egleston for a heart cath
to check a blockage in her right pulmonary artery.
Maybe balloon or a stint...
neither was necessary~
yes, there was blockage,
but no need for intervention now~
yes, she could still need one or the other later,
but for now completely ok!!!

We spent the night @ Ronald McDonald house
and were up bright and early for appt.

SJ was a little anxious at first...

but she and EK began playing
and she as fine!

Probably wondering what exactly was going on.

We call this her Rudolph finger~

We waited about 2 hours
so SJ played her DS

and watched some tv.

EK was the BEST big sister!

When SJ came back to the room,
she had a little trouble waking up.

Watching tv helped calm her...

Finally it was time to get IV and monitors off.

She was very excited she could get dressed!
We got her a balloon
and I had NO idea how big it would be
when I chose it. :)

The nurse asked both girls to get in the chair
to ride downstairs to the car.
You would have thought we were in a parade! :)
It was the best feeling to get home
and know SJ was fine and happy!!!

Thank you ALL for your prayers~
they were certainly felt!!!
It was the perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day!!!
