#6 Trip to California.....

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to update before I got to busy, before we leave for California. We are flying out Tuesday morning, bright and early at 530am. I hate getting up early!!!!!! Callie has pre-op the same day at 2pm. Then, her heart cath is schedule for 830am on Wednesday morning. If all goes well, we plan on flying home on Saturday. Fingers crossed!!! Will cannot go on this trip, so my Mom is coming with me to help out. Which I am so grateful for because Callie can be a handful at times when she is at the hospital! Please pray for a safe trip and our plane gets there on time especailly since we have pre-op the same day. Please pray for Miss Callie and for the Lord to be watching over her, for good news and for no surgery at this time. Also, pray for the Nurses that Callie doesn't knock them out! LOL She has some what of a temper:)


  1. Hey Guys,
    We will be praying. Please let us know if we can do anything on this end. i.e. pick you up from the airport, bring food, etc.

  2. We will be there for a clinic appt. on Wednesday! If you are looking for company for a cup of coffee or anything during the biopsy, let me know!

  3. Hi Sarah~We will definitely be praying for good news and a safe non-eventful trip. Like the Nelsons, we would love to help in anyway as well.
    Still hoping to meet you, Callie and your mom :) while you are here.
    Love, Terra Chez

  4. You will be in our thoughts an prayers. Safe travels - hope all goes well at LPCH and that you are home soon. the Heckelmans
