The sign says it all! Not only does Bentley love Angelica Grace Designs, we all do. I have known Angie for quite a while now, since way back when she sold on ebay. She is the one that inspired me to start a blog and write about Bentley's heart when I was having a really hard time. She is an amazing person, and I still wonder how she has the time to do all she does, and I did I mention how talented she is.. children's clothing designer, jewelry designer, photographer, interior designer.. ok so I added interior design, but she could totally do that too. Go check her blog out here to read how you can enter a giveaway she has going on now, also see where her other visitors are from, and add yourself too!

PS.. Couple of things. This is the first time I have posted a picture of her complete scar, oh wait.. I take that back. This is the first time I have that you have a clear view, I THINK. You can see the incision, and if you look close you can see two dots under the incision.. that is where the chest tubes were. They both look really good! Now, I want to say thanks to those of you that have been emailing, commenting, and sending tweets letting me know you are thinking and praying for Bentley today. We will be leaving 7ish this morning for her surgery follow up appointment at 1:00pm and we will be coming back home today as well. So we have a long day ahead. Bentley will be having a sedated echo to make sure her heart is functioning properly, along with xrays, ekg's, and all those routine tests. I am a little worried right now, she cannot have anything to eat or milk after 8am and no clear liquids after 10am. This is going to be tough.. they also want us to keep her awake during the ride there.. that is also going to be hard. Bentley seems to be doing well as far as we can see, great actually. We are amazed by her progress since surgery. We are praying that her echo will be just as great. I will post updates tonight once we return, and you can also follow me on twitter to read mini updates during the day.

  13. Hey Crystal! Just wanted to say we were praying and thinking of ya'll today as Bentley had her cardiology appts. I just read your tweets and now I'm totally concerned. Looking forward to an update. It sounds like you had some not so good surprises. Sorry. :(

    Bentley looks phenomenal (as usual) You'll be in my prayers tonight and all day tomorrow and I look forward to your tweet updates tomorrow. Big hugs and kisses to your bunch =)


  15. Hi Crystal. I came over from AGD. I was loving that cute little girl in your picture and felt compelled to leave a comment because I didn't even notice her scar until I read your post. I hope this is an encouragement to you. Clearly Bentley has a radiance that far out shines any scar. I will remember to pray for Bentley and your family for the next several days. To God Be The Glory!!

  16. You ROCK girl. I can't begin to express how much I appreciate you. Really! Your support and help throughout the years has been priceless. I couldn't have done it all without you. Your friendship is such a blessing. Thanks for partcipating in the give-a-way. It means more than you will ever know.
    Also, I love this photo of Bentley. What a true testament to God's promises, eh? She is a radient little girl who sparkles and shines in all that she does. I know that God has a planned a magnificent testimony for her life here on earth. Thanks for sharing her and your trials via the heart condition with us. We admire your strength and courage girl. Stay fierce! :)
    Huge hugs, Angie
