SURGERY IS OVER!!!!!!!!! 1:30 P.M.

Sadie's surgery is over! It went better than we could ever imagine or even hope for. She looks great, came back on only painkillers, O2 and some anti-coagulates - we had expected more. Not to mention they closed her chest (we had been prepared for it to be open), her stats are doing pretty well (bp is a bit low... but not bad). We just can not believe how good she looks. The chest wound is minimal, and should heal to just a pencil line. She's still a bit blue, but it's to be expected. They're talking about taking out the ventilator in a few days if all continues as it is now.

I can't even begin to say how happy we are. We don't know what to do with ourselves. It's this huge rush of adrenaline and relief. Thank all of you for your thoughts, prayers and positive energy - our little girl is doing great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Awesome! Hope that as she gets older she will appreciate that little scar and the amazing story that goes along with it.

    Alastair says mohawks are "hawt", but he is a little jealous that Sadie's got more hair than he does.

    We've still got you guys in our prayers.
