Got Things Rolling

Kate's doing really well tonight. The big news around room 10 is that the bowel is moving...really moving! I know it's kinda personal..but it's a good thing for her...especially to get all that "stuff" out of her body. She has eaten extremely well this evening...including some bread from the local Italian restaurant Nana and I ordered take-out. Plus she had some orange sherbet for dessert. We can see a big improvement in her and her personality. We see that coming through again in her playing and attitude. She has been chewing on everything...her teeth must really be bothering her. We're still waiting on a big ole smile...but that will come.

Kate enjoying some bread from Bravo's...watch out, she may have garlic breath.

S0 just a waiting game now to see how she responds to the medicine. She's had 2 doses of the Viagra...I'm not sure when they will start turning down the Milrinone...we'll know more tomorrow, I hope.

Andy is back...after his tour of Northern Indiana today. Mom is safely back in Ft. Wayne as we just talked on the phone. Seth is exhausted and safely tucked in bed at Andy's parents.
Not the best picture of Kate..but it is so cute...she HATES her nasal cannula and will make every attempt at getting if off her face. Today...she got it pulled down into her mouth and was using it as a teething device.
My flesh and heart faileth, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26 He is our strength....and though Kate's heart may be failing to do it's job effectively...He is bigger...so much bigger than all of this. And in that...we can find some comfort.

"May the Words of my Mouth
And the Meditations of my Heart
Be Acceptable Unto Thee, Oh Lord,
My Rock and my Redeemer." Amen.

Bravo's bread as a teether, we'll have to try that around our house! Also, I love that she'is chewing on her nasal cannula! One way or the other, she's breathing the oxygen! I'm glad she's making such strides and is getting back to her cutie pie self!
