Memorial Day Photo Shoot and the Heat

First of all, I am so thankful for all of the servicemen and women who have given their lives and time for us.

Today we did the photoshoot for Mended Little Hearts calendar. It was at one of the beautiful Spanish missions. It was SUPER humid which made it a little tough to breathe. I can't wait to see how the pictures came out. Gracie took a picture with another little girl who had the same surgery that Gracie is about to have. She is truly a miracle child because something went wrong during the surgery and basically her parents were told that she wasn't going to make it but less than a year later, she is walking, talking and growing. She's a beautiful little girl. If I am able, I will link the blog of the photographer to my blog so you can see the pictures.

The heat is tough on Gracie. It makes her oxygen levels drop drastically. I wish our cardio had told us that but it was a Mended Little Hearts mom who gave me the term, "heat sensitive" and that a lot of the kiddos have that. It can be scary when she drops into the 60s quite fast. I'm lucky that the xopenex nebulizer helps. I'm now hoping we'll have the surgery so that she has a better o2 level and that we won't be so struggling in the heat and humidity.
