Ugh, we got a call this morning saying we had to come right to the hospital for pre-op, that there was a possiblity they would have to do Charlotte's surgery tomorrow(Wednesday) instead of Thursday. Apparently there was a heart transplant last night that threw the schedule off, and there is another baby in the ICU that needs surgery, but isn't ready for it tomorrow. After being told a few different things, they did tell us that the surgery will indeed be tomorrow morning @ 7:30AM.
We went through the pre-op; it took about 4 hours. We had to do blood work, a complete physical, EKG, and chest x-ray, as well as sign all the papers.
We are home now, frantically throwing together an impromtu birthday party for Katherine, since tomorrow is her 5th birthday. I am a bit bummed that this all has to happen on Katherine's birthday, but what will be will be, I guess. Thanks to my aunt and Missy for quickly decorating, wrapping and figuring out a cake and dinner.
Thoughts and prayers for tomorrow please. I am stressed beyond belief, so very nervous. I just pray that everything goes well for my little girl.
I'll update often.
