My little niece...

A couple of you know this but I thought I'd share it with this group too. My niece was born with Ebstein's anomaly and small pulmonary arteries. At just 6 days old she had the first of three surgeries. Today she is at the cath lab to see how her pulmonary arteries and heart are. After today they will have some answers and will be about ready to figure out when to do the next surgery (which is most likely next month). They already took her back and it will take about 4 hours. So keep little Gabriella and her parents in your thoughts & prayers today if you can :)

Here's the little angel getting ready:

We have a support page set up for her on Facebook but I don't think I can post it here so if you want a link PM me :)

She is getting big! But she is still between 11 1/2-12 pounds (it fluctuates). I went and spent some time with her last night and she has such a little personality. Love her! :)

UPDATE:
She had to stay over night because they had to balloon her pulmonary arteries. After the procedure her stats were dropping so she had to be on cpap. My sister sent me a picture and it was one of the worst feelings ever. I almost broke down in the middle if city market. But she's bounced back and is doing good again! Not sure when she gets to go home though.

I'm so glad she's doing good! You're part of the update almost made ME cry. Seriously Kristina, I love that baby, I don't even know her, but I even prayed for her and I'm not religious!

I had a not so good - ok horrible dream last week that she didn't make it through her surgery. It was one of those dreams when you wake up it felt so real, you know? And to hear she didn't do well after the cath lab scares the bajeezus outta me. I haven't been religious in a long tims but watching her overcome so many things is really making me think there is a higher power somewhere so I still pray too!
