Dad here. Bela has finally achieved her 5 kilo weight goal! The cardiologist said that we should celebrate, so I have booked a room at St. Joes for an indefinate period of time starting this Tuesday. They provide complementary soft drinks, with great crushed ice and terrible cafeteria dining. The surgery is on track for Wednesday. They have scheduled Bela with the surgeon's for the entire day. Needless to say Avery is a little emotional and I try and mask it by working and eating. We are now trying to prepare emotionally and spiritually for this long awaited procedure. Many of you have expressed prayers and concern thinking the surgery was this week. We know come Tuesday and Wednesday Avery and I will need the prayers as much as Bela. As many of you can imagine we look forward to this surgery because Bela's heart can not continue much longer without it, but can't stomach the unknown. We have faith in the plan of salvation and trust that whatever is supposed to happen will, but with that said its hard. We love our Bela and can't stand to think about the pain she will once again endure.
We appreciate all the love and support.
