Today marks 9 months since Elizabeth's lung transplant. It has been an AMAZING 9 months, filled with progress and lots of milestones for our precious girl. Not a day goes by that we are not thankful for the family who made this possible. I wont lie, there are days where the fear of her future and the unknown of transplant life creeps in and I get very discouraged and sad. But I have to remind myself ~ everyday is a gift, no matter how short or long this gift is, we have to cherish it. Elizabeth will be a much happier girl, if her momma and daddy are not constantly sad or worried. Its a hard balance that I fight with, but I'm trying. We are so very thankful for the continued support we get from all of you. We are beyond thankful to our parents and sisters who go out of their way to help us and support us. We could not do this without you!! Caring for Elizabeth can become stressful at times, and they provide us with the much need rest/breaks that help us keep fighting so strongly for her.
Over the past few weeks, Elizabeth has been meeting so many milestones, it really is like watching a miracle happen everyday.
