Fontan Recovery: Home

Goodbye, Children's!

We are shouting it from the rooftops and the internets: Maddie is coming home today!!!

I wish I could say that she is tube-free but instead I’ll just be grateful that she’ll be eating dinner with us, sleeping in her own bed, and hugging her brothers tonight.

All of your prayers, all of your kind words and deeds, all of your tireless support have led us here. My heart is full to bursting with gratitude.

We love you, dear family and friends. Thank you for standing by us as we struggled through these long 5 weeks.

Welcome home, Maddie Girl!

  4. Yay! So grateful you are able to do this, rather than being stuck in the hospital for the nurses to do it! Your whole family must be so happy today!!!!! Elated!

  5. Been praying for her lots over here! -Her name is in the Newport Beach Temple too:) So glad she gets a change of scenery and is back to HOME. Nothing better…but we’ll continue to pray for those beautiful TWO DAYS of less than 50 output!!! Oh, you guys are strong and incredible. Love your family.
