God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Anna Grace - July 3

We made it home last night about 7:30 pm. It was so good to be home, although our house is a wreck ... we are doing laundry and trying to put things back in order from being away. Anna Grace slept OK last night although I think it is uncomfortable for her to lay flat on her back. We ended up putting her bouncy seat (which she is really too big for) in the crib and she seemed to be more comfortable sleeping in that. I think it's going to take her a week or so to adjust to being back home. It's been a lot of changes for her over the last couple of weeks.

I know that I am so thankful to be home with my whole family under one roof. It is a blessing that I do not take for granted.

Anna Grace has a doctor appointment with the pediatrician on Thursday and one on Friday with her cardiologist to follow up. In the mean time we are just trying to keep her comfortable with Oxycodone.

It was nice not having nurses come in during the night last night for vitals, much needed rest! We are all just being lazy today and hanging out in our PJ's.

Thank you Lord for allowing us to come home after only 1 week in the hospital. We are thankful!

Also, we are thankful for all our prayer warriors out there. Please continue to pray for no heart infection for Anna Grace. The discharge paperwork said that this is common the second week following open heart surgery and that we should be on the look-out for it. Also, please continue to pray that the antibiotics Anna Grace is taking will clear her UTI completley and that we can stay out of the hospital. These next few weeks are still critical.

Tina, when Mitch had a really bad cold as a baby, the doctor told us to let him sleep in his car seat. It is upright, comfortable and safe. That may also work for Anna Grace. We are praying for your family and are truly blessed by you sharing your blessing with us online.
