All Clear !

Posted by Picasa
We were in Birmingham all day yesterday.  I am so happy to report that Maggie's heart and eyes are fine.

Maggie has a small hole in her heart, called a VSD.  It was reported to be about 4.5 mm in China, and yesterday the ECHO reported it to be about 2.5 mm.  So, it is closing and she will not need any surgery.  In fact, the doctor said to treat her as if she has a healthy heart ! They will monitor her on a yearly basis and she has no exercise restrictions.  Glory !!!
Also, her eyes are perfect ! No glasses for this baby.  We are rejoicing at the great news.  Thank you all for your prayers for Maggie.  We have felt them.  Now, we go back to Birmingham on Thursday to get Maggie's bone conduction hearing aid.  I can't wait !!!!!

This is soooooo wonderful! I have continued to pray for Maggie. She is just blossoming! That smile and those cheeks...I can't stand it. :) Praise God for this news and for this baby girl!

Oh, by the way...I have been so blessed by the song, "To You be the Glory" that you used on one of your "Maggie" Videos in China. In fact, God used that song to speak to me directly just recently. It is a great CD and my little girl requests the song with "Kari Jobe" and sings and sings it. Thank you.

Grace and Peace,

Just had to jump in and say how happy I am for little Maggie! I have followed your blog and journey to bring her home. She is beautiful and has a smile that glows, your photos of her show what love can do! Thanks for sharing the updates. Hugs and prayers!

Whooo hoooo! So glad to hear the great news!

Michele said...

Oh my goodness, I have tears in my eyes. I am so grateful to Jesus for you guys!

I have to tell you though - the tears? They are because of the change in her face and spirit. I know that sounds silly considering I am just looking at a photo, but something is different about her. She looks like she is HOME. Does that make any sense? She just looks like she is glowing. Gosh I am terrible at putting things to words. Just know I am incredibly happy for you guys. And I am thrilled that sweet, sweet baby is HOME.

Praise GOD for the heart and vision good report! God is so good!

Praying the hearing aid goes well!
