We have arrived in California:) We had 2 great flights, Callie was awesome on both flights. We were able to get into The Ronald McDonald House which I am truly thankful. If you come here enough, you know getting in this RMH can be a challenge at times!
Tomorrow is pre-op day! A day filled with echo, ekg, chest xray, blood work not the most exicitng day but hopefully we can make it short and sweet.
Callie is fully aware of why she is here this trip and it breaks my heart. She will tell me, "Mommy, I dont wana have another surgery!" What do you say to that?! But, we talk about it and how we are going to do fun things while we are here also and talk about her other heart friends who are having surgery. Callie finds comfort in the fact she is not the only one and I'm happy that helps her feel a little bit better about what she is fixing to have to go through once again.
One another thing I thought was kinda of funny, that happened in the airport at Jax today. We were just sitting killing some time and this man kept walking by us and finally stopped and asked, "Is she the little girl with all the heart problems?" Will said, yes! The man had seen her on the news a few times and I think he was kind of amazed to see her in person. It is hard to grasp at times that this little 25lb, 4yr old has had so many surgeries but looks so AWESOME she is truly amazing and the Lord gets all the glory for what a miracle she is.
With that said, many of you know we almost lost Callie twice back in August due to 2 aorta bleeds which resulted in 2 emergent open heart surgeries. I have never been so nervous to start this process again, at the same time I am very hopeful that Callie WILL GET HER GLENN and she will have a little break for a couple of years.
Please join us in praying for a great heart cath with awesome results that lead to Callie receiving her Glenn. With continue prayers that the Lord will continue to prepare her little body for this upcoming surgery and that she does OUTSTANDING:)
"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."Matthew 18:20
FYI- Callie's heart cath will be this coming Tuesday at 930am. That time could be changed but right now thats where we stand.
Thanks for checking in, will update tomorrow! Thank you again for all the support we are receiving from everyone, thank you just doesn't begin to describe what it means to us!( I know I say it ALL the time but we are so blessed to have so many great family and friends)
