Going into Surgery in two hours


If this post makes no sense it's because I finally caved and took an Oxycontin for pain. I'm mostly having gas my shoulders and back of all places (who knew air could get up there?) but with the nature of the c/s lots of air can get into places that it shouldn't be-and it hurts! But enough about me...Luna is about to go into surgery-she scheduled to go into the OR at 2pm.

She's doing great and the prognosis for a quick recovery is good b/c she seems to be on the strong and healthy end for a baby with her condition. And we can all feel good knowing they've brought in the Big Guns for her surgery...chief of cardiology along with 2 other top surgeons-so we're not messing around there.

Paul and I have been in discussion with doctors, Anesthesiologists-including the Director of Anesthesiology(another Big Gun here). As well as other doctors who have-with our consent-included her in all the latest studies for various research that will published (more on that one later). So, as you can see this baby is being cared for by the top medical team in The World. One of the nurses made sure to tell me that as tears streamed down myself last night while signing consent after consent form (and the language can be upsetting).

Now Paul and I are going to eat a quick bite and head over to see her before she goes in. Calling all power prayers to make her through this safe and sound.

Here are some photos from this of her room at Children's and where she'll be for the next 4-5 days. And one of her adorable little face and one of her body showing all her sensors.

It just dawned on me that I could find out how you all were doing by running to your blog. Thank you so much for getting it up and running before Luna Ruth was born.

I am in awe of her beauty and am so thrilled that things are going well. I need to go back and read the rest of your blog.

All my love,
