Surgery scheduled for 1:00pm today

Surgery has been scheduled for today at 1:00pm. I'm sorry I'm so slow at letting everyone know. I had this post written last night and ended up going back to the hospital to see Livvy. Then, today they changed the time from 3:00pm to 1:00pm, hence the late update.

I have never been so scared of anything in my entire life. I know that she has to have the surgery but I wish we could just skip it. Obviously, that is not an option but I am just so fearful. The doctors have all been raving about how great she is doing, her numbers look just like they should, etc. etc. I feel like we have gotten too comfortable with things and this is the calm before the storm.

The first 72 hours after surgery are the roughest (according to the docs). Our neonatologist told us today that if they make it through the first 12 hours after surgery without any major issues than things usually go pretty well.

We have spoken with the surgeon, Dr. Cusick, and he is planning on doing the surgery laproscopically, if all the numbers are still looking good tomorrow.

So...please keep Liviana in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow. She needs them, we need them and the surgeons need them.

I will update when I get a chance later today.

The Lord is holding that sweet little girl in his tenderloving arms. I know it's hard, but try not to be afraid. I was told over and over that the surgery itself is no big deal. It's the stuff associated with the surgery, and it sounds like little Liviana is doing VERY well. Prayers and hugs for you!
