Well, we have been released from the hospital, and are only pending one final Dr. Appt. before heading all the way back to Indiana. In the meantime, we are staying in the Columbia, MD area (where we used to live) with friends. We are trying to take it as easy as possible, just relaxing as much as we can for Scarlett's (and ours) sake and seeing friends in the area. Aside from how well Scarlett is recovering (she is pretty much her normal self already!!), we have already been extremely humbled in the past few days by the unexpected and highly generous outpouring of love and support we've been receiving here! It feels like home, even though we no longer live here and we've been gone almost a year. Words truly can't tell all of you who've supported us during this surgery experience [or really any experience since we found out about Scarlett's heart 'problem'] how much the love, prayers, and support have carried us. We promise to continue to have faith and hope in the Lord for all things moving forward, and we do ask for continued prayers as well! I know I've been using this verse a lot as a reference, but it's constantly on my heart: Isaiah 40:31.
The current plan: Travel back up to Philly on Wednesday for Scarlett to receive a check-up, x-ray, and echo[cardiogram] along with one [hopefully] final Dr. visit. The Dr. will then clear Scarlett to leave the east coast for a good long while if all looks good (please pray about this)!! Then we should be on our way home Wednesday/Thursday if all goes as planned.
Again, words can't express how precious, blessed, and amazing our daughter is to us, but I will post some pictures when I can!
Blessings to you and yours,
