So we have scheduled open heart surgery, August 3rd. Only six weeks away, it finally hit me yesterday after taking the phone call from the scheduler at the hospital. I don't know what will be harder going forward as a parent after seeing your child in a hospital bed all hooked up. I'm not a pro, but I'm guessing this probably tops the list of the one of the least fun things to do as a parent. Amazing how this little girl that we've known less than a year has stolen our hearts and is breaking them at the thought of causing her physical pain. However,we are confident in the doctors and surgeons to make good choices and to perform a somewhat routine procedure on our special little girl. We appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers!
