I have a lot to be thankful for this week. Actually a lot to be thankful for in general. Yesterday, Gracie was scheduled for a follow up angiogram to double check on the malformation and to make sure all the veins feeding the malformation were still shut down. You may remember back in Feburary she had a MRI and her surgeon told us everything was shut down but he would still like to schedule an angiogram which would give him a better picture of everything to double check himself. So yesterday we had the angiogram and everything looks great! Still shutdown! Praise the Lord! We were a little fearful going into the appointment that maybe the MRI wasn't a good enough picture and things weren't completely shut down. But our precious angel is done. As long as she continue to meet her developmental milestones she will not have to have anymore check up's till she is a teenager.
* I am thankful for our gracious God who has kept her safe since she was conceived.
* I am forever thankful for her doctors. The amount of knowledge they have is incredible to me.
* I am thankful that we live in a city where these doctors are easily accessable. Unforunately, for many family they have to travel away from home to find specialist to help treat there children.

Yesterday in recovery after everything is done! These pictures bring tears to my eyes. Looking at how far we have come in her short little life time.
*I am also thankful for a recent camping trip we had last weekend. Time away as a family is so precious to me. Not having phone service very well is even better. No cell phones ringing all day, no iPad, no Disney channel, no t.v. Period. And thankful we were able to go with family and friends!
We had some of the best dinners!
Party Barge! The kids loved it...
