Our blog follows the journey of our sweet baby girl, Katelyn Mae. She was born April 14, 2011. At 5 weeks old she was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and we were informed she would need a heart transplant. We were transferred to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, TX. On Sunday, July 3rd we received the life changing call that a heart was available for our princess. Katelyn is absolutely thriving with her new heart and we are eternally thankful for the miracle workers we call her doctors, and the donor family that gave the gift of life to our Kate.
