ALL things are possible with God!!!!!
What is Bentley doing right now? Bentley is sitting in the hotel room with her mommy and daddy!!!!! That's right, we were discharged from the hospital today! Although her heart journey is far from over.. in fact, it will never be over.. once she has completely recovered we will have regular cardiology visits yearly to make sure everything is working good. BUT the hardest part of the journey is now behind us. We will "live" in this hotel room until her follow up from the hospital and then return home.
I know I said this last night.. but tonight either I will update with all the AMAZING details about yesterday and today or I will see if Brittany has time. SOMEONE will post tonight and let you know all the updates and why we were unexpectedly discharged and GREAT news. Oh and I have some pictures that are too cute for words.. yesterday we took Bentley for a ride in a wagon around the heart floor at the hospital. She loved it, and I have the pictures to prove it. Will post them tonight and some from today.
Ryan and I sit here in AWE of how blessed we are.. and the strength that God gave us during this past week. For the past 9 months I was so scared of how I would act during this surgery and hospital visit.. but we felt Him there with us the WHOLE time and gave us the strength to be strong for Bryson, Brenna, and Bentley.
Bryson and Brenna are now back home with grandparents. They will stay with them until we return home. My heart breaks, we have never been apart from them. This is hard.. and I know it will only get worse. Bryson is even playing a baseball game as I type (tear!). But we will be home soon and I am going to give them the BIGGEST hug ever!!!
So the details will come tonight.. I just had to let everyone know we were OUT of the hospital. We now sit here and continue to recover...
Again and again, thank you all so much for the prayers and support!!!
