Gracie had her 4 month check up Tuesday. She's 15 pounds And 25.5 inches.. The ped No longer hears her heart murmur which is a good sign that the holes in her heart probably closed but we won't know for sure till she goes back to the ped cardiologist at 6 months and they do another ultrasound of her heart.

oh Chelle, I'm sorry. Heart wrenching isn't it. But I think that Lily is watching over all of you; I like that picture of a gorgeous stubborn pinky sparkly angel. I'm glad that Alex is acting more like his old self. I hope that Alex and Gracie will bring you some comfort during the next few weeks.

We passed what would have been her 3rd bday October 4th... Thanksgiving wasn't that bad but I expect Christmas to be difficult we will be going out of state from dec 16th-24th but I'm already having a rough time just buying gifts for Alex and Grace knowing I would be buying babies princesses dress up clothes etc for Lily. The 13th of dec will be 10 months so that makes the one year mark coming up more difficult. I can't help but think about the new experiences Lily would have had this year ( she would have started preschool in August etc) wondering what she would have thought about Gracie etc.( I suspect Gracie has one gorgeous stubborn pink sparkly angel watching out for her and her health) Alex is being weaned off PTSD medicine over the next few months so far so good, he's starting to get more back to himself . His therapist said he's detaching from the grief over Lily ruling his emotions and realizing she's not going to come back ( he asked for a while when she was going to fly back in her body and be alive again)

oh that is good news about the heart murmur! I hope the u/s will also be good news.
How are you all doing? I'm sure the holidays are bittersweet.
