WOW!!  We have been flooded with the love, support, prayers, service, help, gifts, texts, calls and notes of so many amazing people! - THANK YOU!!

We were told to plan on a hospital stay of 10-15 days.  We were there a whopping 4!  Stella credits "being a ginger" to her early discharge!😆

Our Heavenly Father is amazing!!

Going home

Doctor said we can go home!  Stella still has 6 weeks of taking it easy.
Thanks to her teacher Mrs. Eastman and her class for making her this awesome blanket!

Madam Mim

She has had a tiring day.  They made her get up and walk down the hall and she got sore and tired and now hates sunshine.

Games in the dark

I was surprised when Stella opened her eyes this morning and said, "Dad can I play games on your phone."  She must be feeling better

Out of the ICU

Stella was moved out of the ICU into her own room.  All chest tubes are out and she was able to get up and walk a little even though it was pretty painful.  The walk pretty much wiped her out so she is sleeping like a log.


This is a an X-ray that shows Stella's new pulmonary valve.  You can also see the 2 drainage tubes in the X-ray.  They just took one out and will hopefully take the other one out soon.


We had a good night. She still nauseous from the medicine, but is able to hold down liquids.
