Cardiology Appointment and Surgery Plans

Today was Mirabel's bi-yearly cardiology check up. We went into this appointment with more anxiety than we have in a while because Mirabel is getting big enough for her third (of three) major surgeries.
Mirabel is doing great, her oxygen levels haven't dropped since last time we were there, her energy levels and color are both good.
All that comes down to no surgery this year, no holidays in the hospital! We'll go back in 6 months are see where we are.

A little behind...

We don't get around to posting here much lately, I blame Facebook and how easy it is to just send pictures there to share with family and friends...
...That said, I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of the family -- Amelia Ann Stone, born 06/21/12.

She's a beautiful little girl who just started daycare yesterday. She looks a lot like Mirabel but I get the feeling she's going to have a completely different temperment (although that may just be because she cries every time I hold her).

Her big sister (who tells everyone she meets that she's a Big Sister) loves "her baby" so much that we often have to tell her to stop leaning on the baby and kissing her constantly.
We're having a pretty good summer,
and Amelia is starting to wake up and check out her world.

Mirabel may have her third heart surgery this fall but we'll definitely send an update when that happens.
Ta-ta for now, oh and BTW, did you see Stacy Lihn's speech at the DNC last night? If not you should because I think she speaks for all heart families on the importance of the Affordable Care Act.

Here's a link if that embed didn't work:

Take care,
The Stones
