What a whirlwind of events for this poor sweetheart! Last Tuesday she went into heart failure. Her surgery has been pushed up to April 2nd. We will go into Primary Children's on April 1st for her sedated echo and then just stay overnight because her surgery will be early in the following morning.

We had to take her to the ER on Thursday night because she can't keep her medicine down and has had a hard time eating because of the heart failure. Her lungs are heavy with fluid/blood which makes it hard for her to eat and she is just so exhausted all the time. After several hours and tests; IV, blood draws, catheter... we were able to leave the ER with the hopes that we can keep her healthy for one more week.

Poor thing. That seriously breaks my heart. That's got to be really hard on you Loni. You are so tough. At least we know where Emily gets it from. We'll be thinking about you guys this week.
