Update 01/23/2012, Elizabeth is doing great!

Posted by on Monday, 23 January, 2012

Great news everyone. Elizabeth is doing great.  It has now been over a month since her surgery and we’re happy to report that she is feeling wonderful. After the surgery she was in the hospital for 7 days, and then was home for Christmas.

She did end up needing to go back to the hospital for 3 more days—we were going in for a normal check-up and they found she had too much fluid still around her heart. That is something they check for because it often happens after that type of surgery. They put her on some medication to fix that fluid problem and she was able to come home 3 days later.

As she was on some strong medicine, she wasn’t feeling very good for a couple of weeks. But she was starting to get back to her happy normal self.  As the week went by she continued to recover well. We are now at the point where they are trying to get her off all medications. As we started lowering the intensity of the medications, her happy content ways were quickly coming back.  She was smiling more and more, and is happy during wake time.

She is now sleeping again through the night and eating great.  She has no fluid at all around the heart  now. I have some great pictures of Elizabeth that show you that she is almost back to her normal self.

I was talking to a friend (a fiery preacher from Scotland) who reminded me how many people have been and still are supporting Elizabeth and our family through prayers. Really from all over the world we had people on our side, praying for healing for our girl.  It was a great reminder for me that God’s love never fails, and that we are never alone. Thank you for being part of that!

With out further waiting, here are some pictures that I am sure you will love.

Jared and Jordan were both visiting on New Years Eve and that is a picture of Jared holding Elizabeth. The picture of Elizabeth with the big smile was taken Jan 13th.

 

New Addition in AZ

Posted by on Monday, 13 December, 2010

The AZ Gentes family is happy to announce that we are expecting an addition to the family. As experienced parents, with 3 daughters, we were surprised and excited to find out that Heidie is pregnant.

We went to an early ultra-sound (at 9 weeks), to find out if we will be having multiples or a single baby. Already having the twins gives us a higher possibility for more multiples. Results show that there was a single heart beat….we were happy with those results 😉  A picture of the ultra sound is on the right.

Everyone that has given an opinion on the sex of the baby, has sided with the Boy. Many people saying that’s their *gut* feeling.  We are planning on finding out, which can happen at around 18-20 weeks into the pregnancy. Feel free to let me know if you have some *revelation* as to a girl or boy.

We were talking around the dinner table the other night, and I had a question that remained unanswered: What is the percentages of having a boy/girl if the first 3 children have been girls (I mean based on history of cases similar to ours) ?  Anyone know the answer? If so, let me know.

Blessings to everyone this Christmas….I hope to send an update on this topic once we have gotten word of whether we will have a boy or a girl.
