Merry Christmas!

We are having the best Christmas ever. Bailey's feeling really, really good and her weight (belly) keeps going down - slowly but surely. We've been not only sticking to the 2000mg low sodium diet, but blowing it out of the water! It seems to really be giving Bailey's heart a good jump start after such a big surgery. Dr. Bramlet (Bailey's favorite cardiology fellow - and very close to the top of her list of all-time favorite people) gave us a pep talk on the sodium before we left the hospital and it has helped us out a lot. Thank you Dr. B! And seeing the great results on the scale helps tremendously too.

It is good to be home . . . it is good to have Bailey here . . . it is good to be a family . . . it is good to be with extended family for the holidays. They're so wonderful - they're cooking low-sodium dishes for the family gatherings too!

I can't stay on here too long because we have more family to visit today, but just wanted to let you know I'm thinking about all of you and hoping your Christmas is wonderful as well!

P.S. Josie got her cell phone and Rissy got a karaoke machine! We've been listening to Hannah Montana and H.S. Musical all morning. Bailey and I were well taken care of too, but we're just glad to be here. Life is good.

Merry Christmas!
I am working today, not to many patients though. We had our Christmas Yesterday and it was wonderful! I am so happy to hear you are all doing so well and having a good time. God blesses those that belive and we give him thanks. Wishing you a Happy New Year from all of us in Telemtry.

We have already celebrated Christmas with our families this past weekend and went to Christmas Eve Services at church last night, so it seems that Christmas is over and it is still Christmas Day. I have been anxious for an update and sure enough you had just posted shortly before I looked at your blog. It is so good to hear how great Bailey is doing! And just in time for Christmas!! May God continue to bless all of you. We are praying for an even more wonderful New Year for Bailey and the whole family!!!

Your friends, C.R. & Janice

What a wonderful gift, to know that you are all doing so well! I know you two are in no hurry, but it will be good to have Angie back at work after the first of the year. Have a wonderful New Years!

It's wonderful to hear that you're doing so well! I'll keep checking and will be thinking of you often. Alivia Grace was born Dec. 19. She's happy and healthy and we're all adjusting to our new routine. Take care, Bailey!
