Open Heart Surgery for Sweet Pea

My precious Sadie Nicole is a heart baby.
Her condition declined, so in spite of her tiny size
they had to go ahead and do open heart surgery at 8 months old.
I'm not authorized to share photos (I didn't even ask, frankly).
The surgery was at Children's Hospital of New Orleans.
I didn't take it particularly well, but to be fair, I was the last
person to find out and it was sprung on me via text message.
I have been a very, very unhappy camper to say the least.
I made the drive to New Orleans without sleep and spent the first 3 
hours curled up on a bench by the front door, trying not to throw up.
At any rate, they successfully repaired two holes in Sadie's heart
and her recovery has been remarkable. She's doing well.

It has been a very stressful time for the entire family,
thus my hiatus and the new backdated blog posts this month.

I have more to catch up on, and I will do that soon.
