Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Look Who's Home!

Margaret Ann is out of the NICU and home with her mommy, daddy, and big brother!

We are so happy!

She's still hooked up to a monitor because she likes to hold her breath every now and then which
scares us all half to death.  Considering her due date is still three weeks away she's doing remarkably well.  She weighs over six pounds now and is just the sweetest thing ever.  Her mommy and daddy are
so happy that their whole family is under one roof. 

We are just so grateful for the wonderful care she received at the McKay-Dee Medical Center
NICU in Ogden, Utah.  It was such a comfort knowing that she was being cared for by such a competent and compassionate staff. 

Thank you again for all the prayers for our family!

You are simply the best!

Oh she looks like a precious little doll laying there in her darling sun suit. I am so glad she is well and at home. Her parent's must be so relieved and exhausted. Now maybe they can catch up on some rest and enjoy staying home instead of the hospital.

PS...Love her old fashioned name.

How can anyone look at this precious child and not believe in miracles? She is beautiful and I will pray for continued progress. Congratulations to all!

What a dear sweet granddaughter. I'm so glad she's home with all that love her.
We had a "premmie" grandchild and he has grown up to be healthy and well.
