I don’t know how long it has been since I wrote a blog, but I can tell you it has been an interesting ride. We had our first grandchild born on April 3rd.  She was born with a birth defect. She had two huge holes in her heart that were convoluted. So we have had to be so careful not to tire her. The Doctors wanted to wait until she had some weight on her before they did surgery. The surgery would in tell them to use the flesh around her heart to build the walls in her heart. At age 3 months six days she went to the amazing Cooks Children’s Hospital here in Fort Worth Texas. She had the top man in his field to do the surgery. Dr. Tam is the most down to earth kind and humble man with amazing skill. When you think about it, it is a scary thing to give over your baby to surgery, Much less open heart surgery.  What amazed me when it was over and I began to reflect back was the amazing peace we felt during the 7and half hours of waiting, was the absolute peace. Keira and we were on the hearts of thousands around the globe. We felt like the ‘Lifebuoy ‘ad in the ‘70’s we felt like we were walk 18 inches off the floor, in a pot of honey. That is the peace we felt. Knowing that all was going to be well, and our little granddaughter would grow up to be a beautiful amazing person, with a brand new heart.

Be blessed to be a blessing
