Thank you everyone for your prayers. Taylor's heart surgery (AV Canal Repair) is finally done! She is doing well and is resting peacefully. She is so precious to us.

The surgery went okay. They were able to close the holes and form the valves. There is some concern now with her left mitral valve. There was not a lot of tissue for the surgeon to work with, which now shows moderate regurgitation (flowing back into the heart). Our hope is that it will get better and maybe change over time. We just need her to grow now. She is to small for a replacement valve. So, we will continue to trust and rest in Him with that. We are so grateful for what was done. We were originally told 7-10 days at the hospital but now we're not sure how long. We will keep you posted. We love you.
