Procedure to begin in 1/2 hour

They have taken Mackynlee back. Nurse got her iv started on the first stick. That was one of my biggest worries. When I had to leave the room, Mackynlee was still awake, but very relaxed. We will get a phone call when they begin the procedure in about 1/2 hour.


We are at the hospital. Just completed the check in process and was told they would not take Mackynlee back until around 11:00. I don't understand why when our appointment is scheduled for 9:30. Oh well, we will just have to wait. Mackynlee has done great without being able to have her bottle, but is beginning to get a little fussy. Ms. Donna Ratliff, Melanie, and Keli are here with us now. Between all of us, we will take turns doing whatever we have to to occupy Mackynlee until time to go back. Ms. Diane, Mark's mom and her friend Ms. Diane Seago are on there way. Thanks for checking on us and praying for us. I will update again after they take her back. I have no cell service in this area of the hospital. Sorry, I will not be able to text anyone today.

July 21st

Mackynlee has had two doctor's appointments this week. On Tuesday we saw our pediatrician. He was amazed at how well Mackynlee is doing. He said she looks great and with the help of a few exercises over the past few weeks, her development is right on track!! We can start her on cereal and baby food!!

On Wednesday, we went to the cardiologist in Jackson. This appointment went well also. We are scheduled for a heart cath in Jackson on July 21st. Special thanks to my friend Mel for going with us to Jackson!

Thanks so much for all of your prayers. Continue praying for Mackynlee and all of the other heart babies/ families that need your prayers constantly! Pray for the doctors that will be performing this procedure on Mackynlee and the doctors that will be doing her surgery next month.

Mark will be out of town (at work)on the day of the heart cath. Pray that I will be strong enough to handle this without him, and he will have a peace of mind that day. We're neither too happy about this, but with his work schedule and the doctor's busy schedules, there was no way to schedule it for him to be there.
