Pre-Surgery Update

Just a few quick tidbits before we go in tomorrow.

We had an appointment with Isabelle's ortho yesterday and he said she looked so good that he doesn't want to see us back for a whole year! Woohoo!!!

We went for her pre-op check up today and got a chance to speak with the surgeon. He told me that there are two options he has once he gets in. One of the options will work better than the other. It has to do with the instrumentation that he will use and to just spare you the boring details I will just ask that you please pray that the better one works. Not only will this work better but he will be trying that one first and if it doesn't work then he will have to do the second once which means she will be under for longer. I don't really have any other details or any other information that is different from the last surgery. Just please pray for my sweet girl and that everything goes well.

Also, while at the pre-op today I was told that because of the swine flu the hospital has a new rule that only parents can be in the rooms with the children even once they get out of PICU an into a regular room. So if you were planning on visiting it will have to wait until we get home. Sorry!

I will be updating tomorrow from the time she goes back until the surgery is over like I did last time so please stop by and check in on my girl.

Prayers, Prayers, Prayers!
