Thursday Afternoon

Hi guys! I just got a phone call from Shane and I could tell immediatley by his voice that today was a MUCH better day!!

He said they found a leaky vein somewhere in Avery's chest. It was causing her to bleed quite a bit and that's why they couldn't get her blood pressure up. So, they went in and repaired it and since then her blood pressure is up to a good level and she has started peeing again!!!! Praise God!

Shane said she is much less swollen and is just having an all around good day. He took some new pictures that I'm sure he will post later. For now, he and Carissa are strolling around down by the river in Little Rock and getting some fresh air.

The new plan for her CDH repair surgery is that it will take place on Monday or Tuesday of next week.

Thank you, on Shane and Carissa's behalf, for all your support and prayers.

    I am celebrating with you. You are on my heart and in my prayers. No mother ever wants to see another family go though medical stuff. God loves you and your little one. I am so glad you already know that.( I am a friend of Lizz and a mother of 3 who has been though some up hill stuff with the kids)
