11:47AM CST It has been an eventful morning!  Tia had her heart pace wires removed as well as her two chest tubes (she knows them as big straws).  It was a difficult procedure for her.  The team at Children's Medical Center did a fantastic job listening to her wishes of going slow, giving her information and stopping for breaks when she asked for them.  She has been moved to a new room on the regular Cardiac Floor instead of ICU.  Her chest x-ray showed some 'gunk' in her lungs this morning so we are going to try to get her up and walking around.  We don't want her having a repeat of the pneumonia that we know so well!  Pastor Kory from our awesome church, Argyle United Methodist Church brought Tia a prayer shawl.  We all said a prayer together asking God for a quick recovery.  Tia is resting comfortably right now with lots of pain meds on board.

Our little girl is trying to look so brave and she is once again tugging at all our hearts. I've looked at the photoplay of when she had her initial heart surgery a hundred times this week and can't believe the miracle that was and is taking playing through right now. If love can pull her through, then this is a no brainer!!! Give her love, hugs and kisses from Grammy....and Luci too!!
