Surgery Update: Pre-Op Complete
Just a little update on the surgery. We are *finally* done with pre-op testing. We have to be at the hospital at 6:00 am on Wednesday the 12th to check in, they will take him back around 7:00 and once they get started the actual surgery will last about 5-7 hours. We expect to get to see him mid-afternoon.
To see what exactly they will be doing, you’ll want to check out this post. It is a delicate and lengthy procedure. This is his third open heart surgery, and we are hoping it is his easiest so far! He will most likely need more open heart surgeries in the future as well, to accommodate for his growth.
He is SO BRAVE! I can not believe how courageous he is… he has not cried once, and not shown hardly any amount of fear – although I would not blame him one bit! I think we are more afraid than he is. ♥
I will have LOTS of time to kill, and sitting idle will not do. I will have my laptop and yarn and crochet hooks and books. I will keep you all updated both here and on the Deal Detecting Diva Facebook page.
Thank you for your continued prayers!
