Headed Home!!!!

Can you believe we are heading home tomorrow? Or that Lyla was discharged today!!?? Last week, this very day she had open heart surgery!!!!! I can't believe it. If she didn't have a chest scar and a suture where the chest tube was, I would be sure we were just visiting Boston Children's Hospital!!!!

I am an emotional mess. I wasn't sure if I would leave that hospital with my beautiful, incredible daughter!!! How was I ever deemed worthy enough to not only know her but to be her Mom??? I don't know, but I absolutely know how very lucky and beyond blessed I am!!!!!

I am hands down so very Lucky to Love Lyla!!! When I named our blog 3 1/2 years ago, I had no idea how powerfully true those words would one day be!!!!

Thank you for praying for Lyla and for loving her!!!!!! This journey was possible because of You!!! We will always be grateful!!!!!

Thank God for Our Little Miracle!!!!!

I have been reading along here on your journey for a long time and seldom comment, but that little girl is very special and I hope this is the beginning of many more celebrations. for all of you.
