Pre-Op Day

Today we had to do a bunch of pre-op stuff..she had a CT this morning which she did really well and surprised everyone..the tech wasn’t sure why they didn’t sedate her but I said that she will do just fine..and she didn’t let me down and did wonderful…then we seen a bunch of different dr.s and nurses..and business office stuff…and then she had to get labs done to check her blood count and also to check how her blood clots..standard procedure before a surgery I guess..she did great for that to..She shocked me on that one.but Daddy went with her this time and she just woke up from a nap so maybe that helped..She fell asleep waiting for the last doctor…

Then around four we came back to the house and she got to play in the playroom for awhile and she found the kids library filled with a ton of kids books and was happy.Here are some of the pictures of the house we are staying in…the street is lined with these old victorian houses..and they are pretty neat… This the one we are staying in…

For supper tonight we went on  an adventure…we went walking the streets of downtown Brookline.. and the following pictures are from our walk..it was kind of cool..I am amazed at how many people walk/run and ride bike everywhere..and rely on public transportation.
The train goes right through the middle of the two roads..

Well that pretty much sums up our day..Tomorrow morning is the big day..We have to be at the hospital by 600am..and the surgery is at 730..the surgery is about 4.5 hrs long..and they said they will update us every 90 minutes..after they do the triple pelvic osteotomy they will move her hip around and see if it pops out still and if it does they will go ahead and do the femoral osteotomy too…please please say lots of prayers for my little girl tonight and tomorrow morning..and the drs involved..and of course for me..this is hard..probably the hardest thing I have ever done..

Wiill be praying my friend....and be anxiously awaiting updates. Love to all of you. Take comfort in the arms of our Lord as He will be with her in surgery, watching carefully over when you feel like all control is lost from you. Hold His hand tight and know He is the one in control and will guide all those doctors and nurses...prayers to Him for success and a uneventful and quick recovery.
