New Info...

Just wanted to update everyone on Mia and a couple of fundraiser/giveaways! Mia is continuing to heal nicely! She remains on pain meds but got her 2nd chest tube removed yesterday! Only 1 more chest tube left. Her heart rate and oxygen saturation numbers continue to do well and it looks like they may extubate her tomorrow, which means Mom and Dad can hold her again! Mia is making great strides and I know in time she will be like any other little girl! Mia continues to capture the hearts of all her fans and it seems she gains new fans daily! I know I say this a lot but thanks again to everyone that donates and supports her, as well as her family!
I received an email that said Mia had made the front page of the newspaper. A group of BYU students have organized a bike-a-thon where money is raised for each mile that is biked! To read more about it click on this link:
They have also set up a facebook group which is open for anyone to join. For more info on that group click on the group of bikers picture on the left of the blog or click here
and THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who have stepped in to help this sweet baby girl!
Also, today is the last day to be entered in the flower hair clip/bracelet giveaway! All you need to do is click on the word above or the related picture on the left side of the blog. (If the pictures don't appear for some reason, just refresh the page, sometimes blogger is weird!)
One last thing...the quilt giveaway is closed but Congratulations to Erin, the winner of the beautiful quilt!

I can't believe how many people participated in the quilt give away. Last I looked there was 229 comments. Incredible!! I've never seen SO many comments for one post. I hope it raised some good money for them.

I LOVE GOOD NEWS! The McDonald's are in my heart and prayers! Go, baby Mia! And, I keep a prayer of gratitude and comfort in my heart for the family who gave her this heart. I can't imagine being on either side of the transplant equation, but I am so grateful we have the medical and emotional capacity to do this!

Hey, my name is Dane and I am one of the two BYU students who is doing the bike-a-thon mentioned in the post. I am so happy that the word has spread a little, and thought I would leave a link to the facebook group where people may pledge for MIa.
