Another good day for Grace's road to recovery. Her big sisters got to see her for the first time this evening. She has slept almost the entire day why the medicine and her body do the work healing. Her vitals continue to bounce around a bit, but this is described as very minor. By tomorrow night she hopes to escape from the ICU to the Children's Floor.

Thank you again to everyone for all of the prayers and kind words.

They mean more than you will ever know.

You know that the Blowout Battalion will continue to have your daughter in their prayers/thoughts/etc. until she gets out of the hospital.

I'm sure you've been busy with all that is going on, Chris. Just wanted to let you know the giveaway/contest in Grace's honor went off without a hitch

i'm sure this goes without saying, but if you happen to need anything, just let us know.

I hope she is on the Children's Floor and able to meet some new friends this evening! Still sending lots of positive thoughts your way. Grace is an inspiration!

After a very difficult day yesterday, Grace bounced back well today and escaped the ICU this afternoon. Her Hemoglobin just was not bouncing back and she had almost zero energy. They gave her a Blood Transfusion this morning and it gave her a nice little spark with some attitude and sass. She kicked me out of the room at one point this morning. When I came back to the room this afternoon she reminded me that she could do it again. If all goes well she should be discharged middle of the week.

Thanks again for all of the continued prayers and well wishes. Everyone of them is appreciated!

Grace is now home!!!

This evening Grace was discharged from the hospital and is now hanging out with her sisters at home.

It was touch and go as recently as 1am this morning if Grace would be able to go home today. She had been vomiting for 5 days and the Potassium that they attempted to put through her IV was extraordinarily painful. As recently as Tuesday afternoon she was still on Oxygen because every time that they removed it her vital signs tanked. It is an absolute miracle what the human body can adjust to. By late morning today Grace finally kept food down and was determined she was going home. She looked fantastic as we left the hospital.

What a week that it has been. I do not think that I would trade it for the world now that my little girl is on the path to good health. It has been a week of enormous worry, hope, sadness (when you see your child in pain), tears of happiness (just after she woke up from surgery she told me that she wished that she could hug me), thankfulness, praying, feeling the pain and praying for families in far worse health circumstances than our own.

I want to thank everyone again for all of the prayers and well wishes. They meant the world to my family and I.

After coming across this thread for the first time today, I'm happy to hear things are going well for your daughter. I can't imagine how that would be if it were my daughter in the same situation. I'll pray for her continuing improved health.

Thank you for the updates.

I'm so happy to hear Grace is home and recovering well! I can only imagine what that first hug after surgery felt like.

Great news, we all know that saying. No place like being Home!

(We should do a collection so when she's better maybe a Toys R Us visit?)

Wow, how did I miss this?! Congrats! Thanks so much for updating us! Hope everything continues to heal with your daughter. I was born with the same exact heart condition and surgery made the difference in my life. If I didn't have the surgery, I don't think I'd have lived till my 30th birthday which will be next week!

Keep plugging my friend! The best is yet to come!
