Good News!

Yesterday was emotionally draining and interminably long. But I’m happy to report that Daphne made it through surgery and is doing extremely well in the CICU (Cardiothoracic ICU). The swelling is going down. She's breathing on her own. She's eating better than expected, and she's often alert. Will, Shelby, and my mother-in-law, Judy, are in town for the weekend, and they will get to meet Daphne later tonight.

Will and I are filled with gratitude to our Heavenly Father for protecting Daphne and sustaining our family during this stressful time, and we thank everyone who has joined us in praying and fasting for Daphne. Thank you so much for your love and support!


  1. So glad to hear the good news. I hope you enjoy a special family experience tonight with your newest little addition.

  2. Dear Will and Rachel, congratulations on your beautiful new addition! We are so thrilled for you! We're so glad that her surgery went well. We have spent a large chunk of time at Primary Children's with our little guy in the past four months. Make sure to take time each day to do something away from the hospital-even just for a little while. It helps a ton with the stress :)
