All smiles and giggles

Callie had her pre op today that started bright and early at 730am. She was so very happy to have her picture taken (echo and xray) Callie helped the echo tech get everything ready for echo. She was as good as gold:) Then we met with anesthesia she was all giggles and smiles for them! Doing anything she could do to be silly, little Miss Personality.

We haveto be at the hospital at 630am, Callie is the one and only case tomorrow. So, there shouldn't be any delays. I will do my best to update during the day to keep everyone up to speed.

Thank you to everyone who has Callie on the prayer list at Church and praying everyday for her. Please continue to pray for her safety and successful surgery.

Love to all.
