Emily updates!


Our sweet little angel Em. We had her cardiologist appt on Thurs. Plans are to move ahead quickly with her open heart surgery. The hole is starting to come together but the alignment is off so if it did grow together it would deform her heart and cause more unnecessary surgery. First they have to do sedated echo cardiogram. She is scheduled to go in on March 13th for that, we will be there for 12 hours. The purpose of this is so the surgeon will know exactly where the hole is and how to go in and get the job done efficiently. After the echo, the surgery will be scheduled about a week or so later. All should be done by the end of this month! It's crazy that is is here and will all be behind us shortly! Emily, or Em and Em as Iz calls her, is one tough kid! She is as sweet as can be and we know she will get through this with flying colors! Thanks to everyone who has kept us and her in your prayers!!
