Today is a day of great celebration! Today is Izzy's 3 year Heartiversary!! Thanks to Facebook, I was able to read my thoughts from that day...a day I will never forget.
September 22, 2014...
Isabella went back for surgery at 8:03. They said the operation could take between 4-6 hrs. They will be calling me with updates throughout the morning.
Handing her over to the Dr was the hardest thing I've ever done. But I envisioned that it was Jesus' hands I placed her in. Thank you all for your support and prayers over the past 2 1/2 months. "I will lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety." Psalm 4:8
10 hrs later....
I thought I had prepared myself for what I would see when I walked in Isabella's room, but I don't think any amount of preparation can make it an easy sight to see. Although her surgery went very well, she is struggling now. They are having difficulty keeping her sedated. She can't cry because of the breathing tube, but you can see the tears in her eyes. It is heartbreaking to say the least. Her blood pressure is high and she has a blood sugar of 358 and carbon dioxide levels are also high.
The doctors told me the next 24 hours will be critical. They are watching her very close and her nurse is in the room at all times.
3 years later and look at her!! She proved them all wrong then and she will continue to show the world that she is a warrior, a world changer and a blessing to ALL!! #LifeIsBetterWithYou#teamizzy#dsawareness#alopeciaawareness#heartwarrior#chd

Her view is very beautiful⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tutu particularly wore our "Blue Roses Midi Skirt" thinking she will blend in with all the beautiful flowers at Araluen. And she definitely did, she had about 4 bees landing on the flowers on her skirt during our time there. Of course she freaked out. 🙈🙊but had her brothers looking out for her 🌸💮🏵🌸🌷🌺🌻⚘🌾🌿 the park was so beautiful, more beautiful each time we visited. We all had a such a great time too.
