This is a blog for my daughter Scarlett. She was born with a complex congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. She is my little hero.

I just woke up from what seemed like the most sleep I've had in months (5 hours in-a-row), and there's my tough little girl next to me in her hospital bed peacefully sleeping (she's still under sedation) from her very long day following a 7-hour open heart surgery. I got up to check her "numbers" and I said out loud to Maria her nurse: "Holy Cow her oxygen is 97!" a number I've never seen since she was born. And Maria says: "Yeah, sure beats the 60s, right?"...and I just say: "I can't believe it."
So of course I had to take a picture. Her oxygen went down to 95 in this pic, but still.... it's amazing and wonderful. :) All her numbers look great. She definitely has an entire legion of angels protecting her and keeping her safe. Thank u God (& all the angels and saints) for taking care of my little girl. Blessed be God forever. Amen.
