I apologize I am just now getting to the update of today. I was so tired after today's events Ella and I took a long nap, then rather than updating right away I spent the evening loving on my girl, now she is sleeping I can update, ( have to have priorities). Just the same I know you are anxious so after a long day and lots of testing, and blood work :( , we are a go for the Glenn open heart procedure first case in the morning! When we met with the surgeon I made him assure me he would do his very best! I asked him if he would be extra extra careful, he said yes, I immediately stepped up to where he was sitting and told him to look in her eyes :) I am convinced that one look in her eyes and he wouldn't be able to stop thinking about her :) sneaky I know :) but a mom has got to do what a mom has got to do! We will be getting to the hospital around 5:30am - 6:00 am surgery will begin sometime around 7:00am. I really don't have much to say other than PLEASE PRAY for Ella tomorrow and the days ahead of recovery. Please spread the word, share the blog, etc. with all your friends that are willing to lift her up in prayer. This surgery is significantly less dangerous than the previous 3 surgeries, however it is still open heart surgery! They said they expect the surgery to last about 4 hours and we are supposed to have hourly updates. One piece of VERY good news is the hospital stay could be much less then we had previously understood it to be!!!! We had originally heard 2 weeks, but today they said if all goes well we are looking at 5 to 7 days in the hospital and then we will stick around in Dallas for a day or two for follow up, then HOME!!!!! We are nervous but optimistic, we thank you in advance for the hundreds of prayers that will be sent her way!
