Update 12/21/2011, Elizabeth is home from the hospital

Posted by on Wednesday, 21 December, 2011

Elizabeth arrived home from Phoenix Children’s Hospital on Dec 20th…which is exactly 5 months from when she was born.

Her surgery was successful and the recovery was amazing. While we had heard recovery time in the hospital would take 2-3 weeks, she was home only 1 week after her open heart surgery.

We are all so thrilled that she is home. God is so good—the last night of her hospital stay, a new nurse was on duty. This nurse has a young son who has Down Syndrome and she shared her experiences about her son and their struggles and victories….this was very helpful for us and also gave us some insight into raising Elizabeth. This nurse is a Christian and actually lives close to us and we have some of the same case workers and therapists. Heidie was able to get her contact information, and will be able to stay in touch with her. God does know exactly what we need.

What a wonderful gift that our peanut will be home and the family can be together this Christmas. Thank you all sooooo much for your prayers and support for us—I really can’t express enough my gratitude for standing with us during her surgery and hospital recovery.
