Quiet, shhh

Pin It Just as I prayed for!!! 
It has been a quiet and completely uneventful day here in Room 9!! No activity whatsoever! So quiet and peaceful that I actually took a 1.5 hour power nap this afternoon, ordered by my fabulous nurses!!! 
Ivy's little heart is doing sensational. She is showing the doctors her determination and strong will to live once again! Both her doctors and her nurses say that there is not one thing they could expect to be better at this point! Woo hoo baby girl!!
So Im keeping it short today. Just wanted you all to know how ~our~ girl is doing. This village of prayer warriors really has become our special little big family!

Ivy will remain paralyzed and sedated until her chest gets closed. Dr Baird will not be at the hospital tomorrow and he wants to be the one to close it so that will happen first thing Tuesday morning. After that, it will be just a few more days of slowly waking her up and as soon as she is awake enough to breath, we will get that ventilator out and start our road to recovery!! I can hardly wait!!!!!

She will move mountains during her long long life.

Wonderful words to read after checking the blog about 10 times today! I don't know if I've posted before, but I've prayed and prayed for Ivy Joy and the family that loves her so much. So grateful to God for the hope of healing of Ivy's heart, but also for the "heart" of the faith community strengthened by the gift of prayer.

Thank you Mary for keeping us updated. So many people at church today asked me how she was!!! I have been thinking about her all weekend. Sierra is loving to tell people the story of how Ivy now has a pig valve in her heart!! You should have herd her when I told her "Really Mom??? A PIG valve???!!!" She did ask me though... if I thought Ivy would start oinking!!! Your girl is amazing and so is God's Grace!!!!
Love and hugs

��It truly is so incredible to read your fabulous recap.. Have you ever written uneventful and IvyJoy in the same sentence!!!! So thankful God prompted you to go back to Boston!! It is such a privilege to pray for you! Watching God work in and through Ivy is so amazing!! In awe of His faithfulness and love for her!

Now please listen to those nurses and go hibernate in your sleep closet!! Ivy Joy is going to need her very tested Mama very soon! Praise God for that!!

I'm kind of new to Ivy's journey but I love that t-shirt! Our saying (for our 2 going on 3 yr old hurricane) is "She's mini but mighty!"

Praying for Ivy (and Lily right now)
