We had a really good talk with Dr. Hockmuth and he helped put our minds at ease about many things. (Sorry Uncle Corey- he did go to school at the University of Iowa.... I will be a Hawk fan for this occasion :) For the surgery itself they will make an incision on her left side and then go in and take out the narrow part of her aortic arch and sew the other two back together. I have no idea how they do it but I know that I am so thankful that they do! We are really looking forward to getting the surgery part done so we can move on to recovery.
Thank you again so much to all of you for all the support, prayers, and love. We are seeing how truly blessed we are. It really means more than you will ever know!
On a non-surgery note: Miss Amelia has decided that the best hours to be awake are between 12-5 am. She had herself quite a party last night and invited both mommy and daddy along for the ride. Here's hoping that tonight will offer a little more sleep our way.
Also HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY cousin Eli!!!! We love you very much!
