LJ – Out of Surgery

LJ is out of surgery. They were SO PLEASE with how she was and how it went!!!! THIS IS GREAT NEWS!!! The best news we have had!!! She had 80% of her diaphragm, which is a lot! She also had about 70% of her lung in the left side (CDH side), which is also GREAT! They didn’t have to patch the diaphragm, just stitch it! They did the surgery faster than anticipated. They say she will probably get to go home faster than most CDH babies! I am tearing up as I write this! GOD IS GOOD! Thank you thank you thank you for all the prayers. We will continue to keep you posted as we know more, and hopefully get some after surgery pics up of her.

Lots of Love,

Ben, Katie, & LJ

    WOOHOOO! Love it when God answers prayers for the surgery to go well by saying “yes, yes I will allow it to go well”. Praise our Father.

    God is so good! What a miracle and blessing. 70% is a lot of lung for CDH. Thank you Lord.

    Wonderful news! I’m so glad to hear all is going so well for LJ. But….did we ever really doubt the power of God and Prayer?!?!? I hope you all are able to get some rest in the coming days…but I know how hard that is with a baby in the NICU. You will be in our continued prayers and thoughts. Much love your way from Atlanta, Georgia!!!!
