Discharge Echo

Pin It

Before you can even start the process of moving towards a discharge day, you have to pass that DISCHARGE ECHO......
the one that brought me to tears and on my knees in despiration last trip.
The one that left Ivy being whisked to the OR for her 4th Mitral Valve surgery in November.
I feel almost too giddy and excited about the progress Ivy is making, the speed of her recovery, the way she is eating, the fact that she pushed a toy around the ENTIRE 41 bed unit yesterday, legs shaking with exhaustion in the end but when she got to her door she said, AGAIN and then plopped to sitting position exhausted!! How her cardiologists stops by her room and then pops back in just to peek again because he just can't beleive how good she really does look! How her nurses from ICU just can't believe the little girl they are looking at is the same one who came here with a good 5 pounds of excess fluid in her body and the same child that came out of her 5th open heart surgery in 10 months looking so lifeless.
And yet I am shaking with anxiety at the same time because I've done this before. I beleive that Ivy is doing as well as Ivy could possibly do. Left side really looking good. Right side suffering from the right coronary artery issue. We need todays echo to say that the RCA is as good as it can get in its tattered condition. That its hanging on and it is not going to stop her from coming home and living life. That is todays prayer. That the healing hands of our mighty God who made Ivy for all His glory and has brought her from near death so many times, will keep that right side well enough. Well enough to play. Well enough to be smothered with love and affection. Well enough to go to the park and swing on the swings and just be a little girl!! Well enough to learn all about Him and well enough to share her story and bring HOPE to anyone who feels they have none! That is my prayer!
