We spent our Christmas afternoon at LDS Hospital after Bambi was life-flighted there from McKayDee Hospital, in Ogden, Utah the night before.
Bambi had her labor induced on Christmas Eve, 2002, after having episodes of her heart beating eratically for a few weeks leading up to Christmas.  This was about 2 weeks premature of her due date.
After giving birth to Ellie, on Dec. 24, we were hoping that Bambi's heart would return to 'normal'.  Unfortunatly, that was not to be. 
A nurse on the maternity floor at McKay Dee noticed Bambi's heart was still acting abnormal.  After the doctors monitered her for a time, they decided it was critical that she be taken immediately to LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, where she would have better treatment options with the Cardiac Program there.
We hoped that this would be the solution to month long worries over Bambi's heart.

Meanwhile, Ellie was back at McKay Dee Hospital in the NICU, while nurses monitered her slightly pre-mature lungs, and a small whole in her heart.
