Then and Now

It was only 14 months ago, however, it seems like an eternity.

This photo was taken in Rittenhouse Square in Center City, Philadelphia on June 6, 2010. Earlier that week, we were discharged from CHOP following Zoe's first open heart surgery, the Norwood. Because we traveled a great distance and had a long flight back to Phoenix, Zoe's CHOP cardiologist wanted us to stay in town for a week to make sure there were no complications or issues. We kept Zoe confined to our hotel room, with the exception of this quick stroll through Rittenhouse Square.

Today, on Zoe's last full day in Philly following the recent cath procedure and ballooning of her left pulmonary artery, we revisited the site of Zoe's first outdoor photo.

As you can see, she has grown so much and come so far in this long 14 months. We are so proud of our little heart warrior. We love you Zoes.


  1. Awwww! I LOVE this! How far you've come Miss Zoes! :)

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! And actually, Stace, I love how you've BOTH gone through such a transformation! Love ya!

  3. Yay! Congrats to the little heart warrior and mommy who has helped her through.
