From Gia’s family blog of 12-15-14:
Daddy and the girls came up for a long weekend visit to surprise their baby sister. Gianna experienced so much more joy and determination with her family around! A cheerful heart really is good medicine!!! Gianna has been doing amazingly well. She is rapidly gaining strength in her legs and core again and is walking while pushing her shopping cart and holding hands. She loves to go out walking.
What a miracle for this little one who had THREE open heart surgeries in a month! And what a testament to prayer that doctors are committed to getting Gia home for Christmas!!
