I am so happy I am wearing the happy hat and doing the happy dance. See?
OK, OK I confess; this is an old picture and not the best quality, but you get the idea.
Last Wednesday Catherine, who is 4 1/2 months old, had major heart surgery to close a rather large Ventricular Septal Defect. The surgery was wonderfully successful and Catherine was able to GO HOME yesterday morning!! So for those of you who saw the post asking for your prayers, THANK YOU!! Catherine has some challenges ahead of her. She has Down's Syndrome and her family need a little extra grace in the days and years ahead. She is a beautiful blessing and we are all praising God for her.
In the past few weeks I have found some wonderful folks who have offered their care and support for Catherine's family. One of those wonderful folks is Tiffany Tachenko Underwood, whom I met through a mutual friend. Tiffany announced today on her blog, Just a Little Bit Downsy (don't you love that title?!) that the old book, Angel Unawares, is back in print. This is the book that was written by Dale Evans Rogers (yes, that Dale Evans Rogers) about her little daughter Robin. It is a wonderful resource not only for families who are dealing with Down's Syndrome but any other special needs child. So hop on over to the link and see what you think and you can register to win a copy too!
