I can't tell you how much I really don't like the head IVs.
A few updates. Jerry brought Hope up to the hospital yesterday. We were told she needed to be here by noon, so Jerry brought her and I took the boys to Chuck E Cheese for Amanda's Birthday Party. The reason they wanted Hope here early was to start her IV so that she was well hydrated for the surgery. I really don't understand why they needed her early though...they didn't put the IV in until after 5 pm. She had a pretty good night and slept most of it...other than when she got hungry.
About 7 am we met with Dr. Mavroudis and a bunch of other doctors, nurses, etc. to talk more about the surgery. Shortly after that...Jerry carried her to the OR. I took her to the Cath Lab and it was really hard watching them put her under, so I elected not to go back. I kissed her when they took her from her room and then broke down. It is very scary knowing that they are working on her heart right now.
I will update more throughout the day.
Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers.
