♥today is a good heart filled day!

from renee 1
Today is a good day for a couple reasons.. the first reason...
from renee 2
Tony( jr) and Vanessa went to a pediatric ♥ heart♥ specialist... and they were told that the babys heart is not defective. ... it looks like one side is a little enlarged. but that could be because the stomach is pushing on it, (remember the herniated diaphram allows organs to get into the chest cavity...) anyways.. it was very good news! The dr said he sees this stuff everyday and that he believes that little Jacob Vincents heart is good!!!!!♥♥♥
from renee 3
The baby still has the herniated diaphram and it can be very serious and even fatal. but we are praying for a miracle that what ever we end up with in the next 4 months that it can be repaired and that Jacob will not have any resulting handicaps.
from renee 4
I just feel so hopeful now. my heart ♥ is happy!! I know his parents are definitely feeling better right now.
from renee 5
The 2nd reason: I came home from work and found this wonderful HEART filled box on my front porch from the amazing REnee at my vintage mending! do you see all the goodies? I love it all. the hand cookie cutter with the little heart in the center, the vintage hankie cone!! (so excited about this!) the awesome heart box with the felt rosettes all over it! and the red checked heart pinkeep!
from renee 6
Not to mention, the box of candy and the heart is full of candy too! And... .if all that were'nt enough... all the little vintage valentines!
from renee 7
And this awesome valentine that renee made as well!
thank you so much Renee. youve made my day!
Renee was my partner in my heart swap. I was so glad that we ended up partners.
I actually have two partners because I kept Stephanie from Germany for my partner too! LUcky me!
yes.. today is a good day!

I'm sitting here with tears (HAPPY ones) running down my big ol' cheeks! That baby is going to feel so much love from every direction that he will defy all the odds! I plan to BELIEVE he will be healthy & overcome any issues! And I'm SO glad for your son & his wife! Hope is a VERY good thing! On a different note, wasn't that the most amazingly sweet thing for your friend to send you? See, Vivvy? You are deeply loved. A person gets back what they send out into this world & you send huge amounts of love! You're just a sweety!
