Charlotte's surgery is tomorrow. It sucks, it's not fair. At only 9 months old she is about to endure her 2nd surgery. It just doesn't seem right. I am trying to keep it in prospective though.
Hopefully, this one will be much easier than the last. The surgery will take about 2 hours and is scheduled for noon tomorrow. She is expected to recover well; though she will have to endure two weeks in a cast that goes up to her shoulder. They are keeping her overnight to keep an eye on her vitals due to her previous cardiac surgery. I'll update from the hospital when I can.
I have spent some time this weekend looking for sleeveless shirts and onsies (I also had help...thanks Missy!). Outfitting a baby with a full-arm plaster cast would be easier if it were warmer than 30 degrees outside, because in addition to these sleeveless options, I also searched through bins of Katherine's old clothes looking for sleepers and a zip-up hoodie or coat to cut an arm off of. Where is spring?!?
I am off to bed, in an attempt to ignore the growing knots in my stomach and get some sleep. We will be up bright and early as Charlotte can't have any solids after midnight and breast milk after 6AM.
