Mid-Day Update - 1:30 p.m.

Hi everyone! All is going very well. We got a report that they were able to do some type of "repair" - removal of scar tissue on the inside of her left ventricle - but don't know how much, if any, they were able to remove. They are beginning to hook her up to the Berlin Heart -- don't know if her heart will be able to heal from the "repair" (assuming they were able to remove scar tissue) or whether she'll be put on the transplant list. Nurse said Bailey's doing very well and tolerating the procedure just fine - none of her "numbers" are jumping. She is a strong little trooper!

Bailey told me last week that she really felt like she was going to be put on the Berlin Heart but that her heart would heal and she'd be taken off of it and everything would be fine. We'll just have to wait and see! I've been praying every moment of every day for just that very thing (well, maybe minus the Berlin Heart - haha!).

Thank you to everyone at R&L for the lunch, goodies, gifts, cards . . . everything! That was a wonderful surprise and very, very touching to all of us. There are about 20 to 30 family members gathered around in the waiting area . . . all here for Bailey. Her biggest disappointment in all this is probably that she's missing the "party", but she's too busy with her own mission right now. We'll party later!!

I'll check in at least 1 more time before the day's over.
Love, Angie.

Hi, Bailey. You don't know me but I just started working with your Dad in November. He told us that you were going to have your surgery today. There are lots of people praying for you today. I've added you to our prayer chain at our church. Riley is such an incredible place. My best friend's grandbaby was in there in March and April last year and they fixed her up really well. You are in the best of hands (especially Gods'). We can't wait to hear that you are out of surgery and doing very well!!! Jan T.

Bailey
You do not know my husband and I but we are good friends with your Aunt Cindy and Uncle Tim. We have been praying for you fo some time and are very pleased to know things are going great. I will be putting you on our prayer list at church. God can take care of your heart. We just wanted to let your family know that there are people praying for you way out here in Arizona. Looking forward to a good report.
