Happier Than Ever

I thought maybe it was time for another update on little Miss Mia! Mia will be 7 months on the 8th and what a remarkable 7 months it will have been. All in all she continues to do well. She still has frequent appointments at Children's Hospital but she is off of a few of her many medications.

She unfortunately still has the feeding tube or "torture tube" as her mom calls it. They are working on her feedings and trying to get her to tolerate formula. She is happy to give smiles freely and frequently and continues to melt the heart of her family and all the doctors and nurses that still see her!
I thought this was an adorable picture as apparently she has recently discovered her thumbs and her knees! Plus diaper only baby pictures are always so cute.
Mia continues to grow and learn thanks to her second chance at life. There are so many people who have supported and prayed for Mia and her family and I just want to again say, "thank you". And to all the wonderful families out there who have so graciously and selflessly given of organs to save another, thank you! Words don't quite do it justice but it truly is an amazing and remarkable gift.

That is the cutest baby!! I love those soggy cheeks! Thanks for all the update, I know there are so many of us who appreciate them. I was thinking it was time for another give away, so I'm working on a wallet for the near future. I just get teary reading your posts, I love this baby and her mom too. What a remarkable Mommny. Thanks for the inspiration Mimi. :)

I am so inspired by Mia and her family's story. I am glad she is doing better and home with her family. Thank you for sharing the miracles that the McDonald family have experienced and I will continue to pray for them.
