I know I didn't update yesterday...it was a busy day and we spent most of it with Hope. She is doing great! I will update on everything that happened a little later.
My prayer request is for the Institution Recommendation that will be happening today. The hospital where Hope is staying has a meeting with everyone involved in her care and they will determine whether or not she is a candidate for surgery. She has a lot of adverse risk factors:
Low birth weight (IUGR)
Atrial and Mitral Atresia
Renal Agenisis (one of her kidneys may not be working)
Chromosomal Issue (although I personally think this is a non issue)
Please pray with our family that she will be considered a candidate for surgery. We value the recommendation and trust all of the doctors that we have been seeing, but we are truly afraid that they will determine that she is not a candidate for surgery. If that happens, we will have to make a decision as to whether we want to get another opinion or turn off her Prostin drip. We don't want to make that decision (and no parent should ever have to make that kind of decision).
We are finding out later today and I will update then, but in the meantime, please pray as hard as you can that the doctors decide that she is a candidate for surgery.Thank you so much!
