Surgery update 9am

Pin It
She did amazing this morning! No tears!!!!! Slept until 20 minutes before taking her.
I was able to take her all the way to the O.R
Last words from doctors were
This is a huge surgery
Don't expect we will be done before 5pm
She will likely be kept asleep for 3 or more days to be sure there is no bleeding or issues with the coronary artery.
She is for sure getting a new pulmonary valve today added to the rest of the work.
We will take very good care of her!
God is good!

I am going to bed now and will pray. Tomorrow morning when I wake up, the first thing I will do is check on the blog. I am sure that surgery will be a success and I will wake up to wonderful news.

Much love from Suzhou.

Thanks for the update. We are praying in CT. Hannah's 1st grade class has their own team saying prayers for Ivy today.

I didn't want to say anything when I posted, but I was thinking it was going to be a long day. I figured if my surgery their took ten hours, I can't image how long this is going to take.

Hugs & Prayers

I found your blog through another and just wanted to say I've been praying for your sweet daughter. My son had a valve replacement surgery when he was 8. I pray for her health and for your family, I know how heavy your load is right now. The Lord still heals :). God bless you and your family.
