Surgery tomorrow at 7am

Pin It
I absolutely can not wait to see this smile again!







Can you? It's contagious! 









And this sassy face?? Oh ya!

 She is readied up! Is that even a word? 



She has 3 IV's (they go bad quickly so better to get them while she is sedated) A picc line, her Art line and her IJ.  


                                               
                            We've been busy!

 Not the kind of busy we'd like to be, but ready we are!


Thank you for being patient today. Ivy and I waited patiently all day for surgery and found out around 5pm that it would not happen until tomorrow. A good nights rest for her surgeon was Gods plan all along. Mommy on the other hand had coffee at 4pm gearing up for the long night and might just be having trouble sleeping now. 

Thank you Abbey, Olivia, and Sophia for checking in on us every single day and loving our girls to pieces!! 

Thank you Annie Kate for your prayers today ~Fors God to makes Iby alls better berry soon!~
 Love you sweet girl!

Thank you for being on your knees for our girl today, regardless of the time and day, God hears our prayers and knows our hearts! 


Thank you to the absolutely amazing 
Minnesota  Team of Tweens 
that some how raised 400 dollars in the rain, in the dark, out of nowhere.... for Ivy today!  A total surprise to me and everyone I think!  The heart these girls have is just the most beautiful thing!!

Thank you Jamie, who I have never even met, who posted today that she is sewing her way to Valentines Day (our heart baby's Forever Family Day) and donating 25% to Ivy and her very expensive Air Ambulance ride to Boston! What a blessing you are Jamie!! https://www.facebook.com/KenzieNoelleDesigns?ref=stream

And thank you, to all of you, for praying circles around our little girl TOMORROW AT 7AM EST
All day, any time, let us flood the gates of heaven once again. 

Let us NOT be weary, we are full of JOY
Ivy has another chance, and for that we give thanks!!!

Put your shirts on TEAM! 

We've got to get this little girl healthy. 
She wants to play in the sand, chase a puppy, swing on a swing, ride a trike, meet Mickey Mouse, jump on a trampoline, make a mess when mommy's not looking, and all the other things that toddlers do! Another chance! Hope! Joy! Life!

Dear Lord,
This isn't easy, but tomorrow I must entrust my Hangzhou Princess in to the loving hands of her Surgeon once again 
Guide his hands please 
Fix every problem, address even the smallest concerns and let Ivy go on and then off of bypass easily 
Give me the strength and the patience to wait, and wait 
Give me the grace to trust 
Bring Ivy back to us healed, stronger than ever, alive and ready to tell her story 
We thank you for using us in ways we never imagined 
We thank you for using her in ways that are utterly amazing 
Thank you for equipping us with the strength and the armor to get through all of this
We are tired now 
We are ready to rest 
We love you always
Amen Pin It

Dear Heavenly Father, little Ivy Joy needs your beautiful healing hands over her little weak body! Please give her the strength she needs. Lord she's so tiny and is counting on you. And with all the prayers from around the World for his special little girl, I know you hear them. So Lord, I ask in the name of our Father Amen!
