We found out at 20 weeks pregnant that Macy has a heart defect where one chamber of her heart does not work. She had her first surgery on June 13, 2006. It went very well. The last one will be August 29th.
Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop us a line in the guestbook.
Macy's defect is called Double Inlet Left Ventricle. She has done miraculously well since birth. She could have had one heart surgery at birth called a band procedure, but did not need it! She came home early from the NICU. Anytime she reached a fork in the road, God chose the easier path for her. She past her first birthday very uneventfully, which is a blessing! She would love to have your continued prayers, even in the years to come for continued good health. She will need the prayers long after her last surgery!
