Sorry for the delay
We have had no internet connection at the hospital this week so sorry for the week delay without posting. Overall pretty uneventful week for Bela and that is all we can ask for. She is still scheduled to go into the cath lab on Thursday to get a real picture of what is going on with her heart and if there are any additional threates that are not being see with the ecco-cardiograms. She is on continual feeds and is back to gaining weight slowly. If I remember right, she was 8 lbs 4 oz when they weighed her this morning. The main goal, aside from keeping her heart working, is to gain weight and get her prepared for the next surgery. We have learned that we can never expect or rely on a schedule at the hospital and have to take it a day at a time, but for now we are anticipating the surgery in 6-8 weeks. At this point we are not absolutely certain that we can bring Bela home before the next surgery and only the cath on Thursday will determine the schedule for the next month or so. To all of you that check the blog regularly for updates this is not very informative for a whole week, but I promise Avery will give a thorough update tomorrow.
