Niabi Zoo trip

We had a great time with friends at the zoo yesterday. It was great to have some mommy time and for the kids to be able to play with some friends, too! We took lots of pictures, but here are just a few:

Olivia even behaved while we were away! She had an excellent day. Last night, she started getting little funny, so they turned her back over to her tummy. No problems from then on! She is even wiggling around a bit today. They are going to give her another transfusion and increase some of her sedation so her blood pressure stays in a reasonable range. So, all is well on the home front!

Are you ready for yet another random act of kindness:

There was a card sitting on top of our computer in Olivia's room today. It was a belated happy anniversary card for Zac and I (we celebrated 8 years of marriage on May 27 - yes, that was Olivia's surgery date as well. At least we'll always remember the date she had her mitral valve replaced!) Anyway, there was a gift card for us to go out and celebrate sometime. "With love, some friends" Well, "friends," Thank You! You have absolutely no idea how much you all mean to us. You make everyday so much easier by making us feel so comfortable with everything - whether it be a good or bad day. You pray with us, pray for us, laugh with us, and even sometimes cry with us (or for us depending on the day;) You care for Olivia as if she were your own, and for that, we are forever grateful. Thank you.

Looks like everyone had a great time at the zoo and Olivia was cooperative. Yeah Olivia! We will keep Olivia and your family in our prayers.

Well, Mike and I just got back from a couple of days away and are so glad to read that Olivia is doing so well. The trip to the zoo looked awesome! So glad you all had the opportunity to spend some fun time with Jack and Brooklyn. Keep up the good work Olivia and I'll see you Zac at work soon! You all are in our t's and p's everyday!

So glad to hear that things are "going well". I will continue to check in. My son-in-law checks in with Cousin Reagan whenever he can do we all keep up to date. Prayers and thoughts continue. Ardell
