Poppy came out of the OR this morning around 10am with her new heart!! Dr. Permut was very pleased at how everything went-even better than he had anticipated. Needless to say, it was a long night for us awaiting updates. Feelings of nervousness, excitement, giddiness, and apprehension consumed our bodies. We spent the night on our knees in constant prayer for our girl and all involved that His will would be done and His presence made known. And it was 🙂 Everyone around was soo excited right along with us- genuinely excited…like it was their own child getting another chance at life- truly amazing how God provides us exactly all we need at His perfect time. Miraculous and wonderful. Thank you Jesus! We so appreciate all your prayers and support for us through this- it is so encouraging to hear from all of you and literally feel the divine power of prayer. What a night….a night of awe and wonder and knowing God’s always had this and always will.
We got to see her around 10:30am. We walked in to see her pink!! Our girl is pink like babies are supposed to be!! Her numbers looking great!! Just like they should be!! Her head, hands, and feet have lost there dark low profusion look and her blood is bright red, no longer dark-her body is getting adequately oxygenated!! Soo amazing to soak in. Words cannot even begin to express the feelings that consumed us at that moment. Even straight from the OR she looked like she felt better already!! Praise Jesus!! That sick feeling that comes with staying awake all night, surviving on adrenaline was suddenly renewed, to see our Poppy looking so good- her sweet pink skin and her new numbers to match her new heart 🙂 Like she’s a different baby- like new life…unexplainable really. My face literally hurts from the full on beam I have on my face-oh yah..it’s permanent 😉 God is so good.
Poppy still has a long recovery ahead, so please continue to keep her in your prayers, as well as the donor family who gave the most precious gift of life to our darling girl. You prayer warriors are awesome 😉 Thank you all for the love you show us. It means so much 🙂
