Looking back and seeing all the blessings

Lilyann and Dakota--January 2009

My sweet Lilyann..all heart healthy

Thinking about a year ago tomorrow..... Lilyann was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. January 22ND is the day that we thought our lives had changed forever, and indeed it did. Lilyann was 7 weeks old when her VSD was found. And now she is 13 months and 3 weeks old (1 yr old..he he) It is amazing to see all the improvements in Lilyann; the milestones she reaches; and to see her and Dakota playing together. They are quite the pair of buddies now....except when they find that one specific toy, then the real fun begins--who can squeal louder!!
Lilyann is now a heart healthy little girl. It's been almost a year since her diagnosis, and 9 months since her open heart surgery....Looking at the last picture, you would never be able to tell all that she has been through....just don't lift her shirt, then you will see her little "zipper".
It is amazing to see God work!!
