Precious Baby Rowan has received her perfect healing and is now home with her heavenly father. I can't express enough thank yous for all the prayers said on her behalf. Please continue to hold the family up in prayer at this difficult time. Here is Katie's last update.
We waited for about three hours for an update. I spent time with Jake playing trying to get my mind off of things... cuz all I've been doing is crying when alone. They came out after an eternity and said that her tricuspid valve didn't look like it needed to be replaced after all. Very minor leaking. They were trying to wean her off ecmo but she was having difficulty. They said they usually try to be optimistic but she was having such a hard time. I hate statistics but had to ask. Dr. Carl shook his head and said less than 5 % survival. About ten minutes later dr Carl came in with two nurses and I could tell with the look on his face. He shook his head again and said that Rowan didn't make it. we have spent the last 4 hours rocking hugging kissing
Crying and making as many mementos as possible. I had my same photographer come and take pics. Pics for me and Ryan my family, and a few special for Jake to remember his sister by. My heart is broken but I know hers is whole again and her fight is over. I have a beautiful angel watching over me now. I know this with my birthday is 3/3 and hers is 12/12 and she passed at 3:12pm. It was her saying goodbye mommy I love you and thanks for being my Mom. Thanks you Rowan for being such an inspiration to so many and I promise I will continue to fight and let your light shine on sweet one.
My sweet sparrow fly high
Your heart is whole and body healed as you make your journey to the sky
