Happy Girl!

Lana has been home for 10 months now! Time really has flown by when I stop to think about all of the things that have happened in these past months. Lana's surgery in November, kindergarten, dance classes, swimming lessons, trip to the coast, visits with family, family camp, riding horses, summer school, bike riding (without training wheels!), Chinese school and so much more! We can hardly remember our family without Lana. She was meant to be our daughter.

Physically she is doing great, no restrictions (as you could probably tell from the list of activities above!) Lana has grown 4 inches and gained 7 pounds since October! She is beautiful! Lana had her cardiology check up last week and they are a little concerned that her left pulmonary artery is still too narrow. They were able to widen it in November during surgery, but it may need further widening. She is scheduled for another test next week to see how much blood is going to the right and left pulmonary arteries. Just an IV and pictures of her lungs to calculate the amount of blood going to each lung. If there is not enough blood going to the left lung, they will schedule a procedure to insert a stent to widen the artery. That should do the trick! Please keep Lana in your prayers.
