And then I buried my face in Tanners chest and let the tears come.
We've been sitting in a waiting room for the last 3 hours now with lots of other families with kids in various surgeries. We're the only ones still here from the original group of us. Every time the door opens we both perk up hoping it's news about Bela. At 9 they told us she was intubated. At 10:45 they told us that she was now on the heart and lung bypass machine. Longest three hours of my life. And they just started the work on her heart! The nurse left us with, "Settle in, this is going to be a long day." We got a chuckle out of that. You either laugh or cry right? Like we didn't know that already..
2 1/2 hours down... a few more to go.
I hope I'm strong enough to see her like this again.
Keep the prayers for her coming... we appreciate them more than we could EVER say.
