Operating Room

Dad here. Bela had a really calm night and was so sweet this morning. We just got back from taking her to the operating room and that is never fun, we feel calm and at peace with everything. The anethesiologist emphasized how long our day was going to be so you might see periodic posts from Avery and I just to pass the time. Thank you again for all the prayers in our behalf.

And now mom... I just sat here for a couple minutes without knowing what to type... And that's just how I feel. No words really to explain the feelings, but it's a lot of emotions mixed up together. My nerves woke up with me this morning bright and early. Yesterday I was having a hard time with sending her off so 'perfect' to come back so beat up, but my mom corrected me and told me she's going off pretty beat up, and will come back more 'perfect' than she is now. At least that is the plan... So I'm trying my hardest to think that way, the postive way. This will make her better and stronger. It is still hard, and the tears still flow. They let me hold her and kiss her before they took her from my arms. She slept until just a couple minutes before they took her so i was very grateful for that.
They got a line in last night with ONE poke!!! It was the best IV experience yet. They also got blood from one stick too. She was all smiles after, watched cartoons for awhile (her favorite), and had a good nights sleep, even though they had to give her two baths in the middle of the night (she was NOT happy about being woken up for that). Everyone knows her around her, even down in the OR. THe anestesiologist team that took her knew her already and so that was nice.
So now we wait..

I'm glad that you got to leave her in as peaceful of a way that you could. I have been thinking about you all night and all morning. I saw you called yesterday, I feel like I am calling at such a bad time...if you feel like talking I would love to, but for now prayers are with you and we can't wait for updates.

We know you from a link on Angel Annabelle's site. We have a heart baby who is 7 months old. I just ache for you as you pass these hours while she is in surgery. I know so well the helpless feeling that is and will be praying through the day and anxious to hear how she is recovering. May you find comfort in the Loving Father who is holding her close every minute until she is back in your arms!
