2 IN 1

UPDATE: Dr. M's NP just reported that Charlotte's procedure is going well!!  PRAISE JESUS.  She is being sewn up now and her body is being warmed back up in preparation for her to be taken off the bypass.  It should be about 230/3 when we can see her, before she gets settled in her room.  We hope to hear more details about the surgery once Dr. M starts talking, but he is still very focused and hasn't started "sharing" yet.  Soon...


Around Noon, Dr. Mendeloff was halfway through the surgical portion of today.  Little Miss is still on the bypass machine during this time.  Once he has finished sewing, he will stay with Charlotte as she comes off heart/lung bypass.  We pray specifically that God gives her the vigor she needs to get through this critical stage of her heart and lungs doing the big job without the machine.  We anticipate the surgical process to be completed by around 3, hopefully sooner!  Once the surgery is completed, she will be wheeled through the hallway from the OR to the CHSU (Congenital Heart Surgery Unit) where she will be until we HEAD HOME.  We'll get to see her for a minute or two and "give her a kiss" before heading back.  She'll need about another 90 minutes to get settled and then we're free to see her ALL THE TIME.  Word.

As always, Patrick and I appreciate your kind words, treats and prayers.  They continue to carry us throughout.
