Surgery Date...AAAHHHHH!!

So the University Hospitals called today....we have a date...October 15th! Less than a month away! So let our stress and confinement begin! The surgery will be at 7am. We have to check in at 6am and then we should be able to see her between noon and 1. They will call us every 1 1/2 hours to let us know how the surgery is progressing. We'll go to the U on the 14th for a consult with the surgeon, and the anesthesiologist, as well as a tour of the facility. She will be in ICU for the first day and night and then will move to the pediatric floor as soon as her breathing and vitals are all doing good. We will be in the hospital between 3-7 days depending on how she recovers. Good news is she'll have her own room both in the ICU and on the ped's floor so we will be able to stay with her at all times. So we won't be venturing out of the house much anymore....please keep us and especially Addie's health in your prayers. We've made it 2 1/2 months without any sickness...pray we can make it four more weeks.


  1. Wow! Having that date is a relief and scary too. We'll keep you in our prayers as the day gets closer. Hoping you all stay healthy!

  2. I know you were dreading this day but she will do great! If you need support there, let me know, and i will come!
