The other Bunny

It's been awhile since I've given a Lucy update. She is doing awesome! Last month when we went to the cardiologist I was pretty discouraged because she hadn't been gaining weight. Her cardiologist wanted us to see nutrition again to come up with a plan to get her to gain more weight. We weren't able to get an appointment until today. She's gained more than a pound since our appointment last month. The doctor was super impressed. We've been trying so hard to pump Lucy with extra formula. She also moving like crazy. She's not crawling like her sister but yet but she's getting a little closer everyday. I think her physical therapy is paying off. She actually has someone come to the house to help her in addition to going to Children's Mercy. It's been good to have two different therapists because they both seem to pick up on different things. Lucy has her cardiac cath on Monday and then next wednesday we'll meet with cardiology to talk about the results. Even though Lucy could probably go a little longer without her repair I don't want to put it off any longer. With her first surgery she was so sick beforehand. I think that is why she had such a difficult recovery. I want her to be as healthy as she can going into this next OHS. Go Lucy!

We finally got some cute Easter pictures with Lucy too.

Who says we don't look alike?

My girls were all abuzz with delight at seeing both of your girls at church on Sunday. Everyone in our family is pulling for them. We'll remember Lucy in our prayers especially hard as surgery time approaches.
