Surgery date update

The doctors and surgeons have a meeting this afternoon and Lindsay's case is the topic of discussion. We will know this afternoon sometime on a date for surgery. In the meantime, she is doing just great. Amazingly enough she has actually taken 4 ounce bottles since we have been here. Must be she knows she is in for surgery and trying to bulk up a little. She had only taken 3 ounce bottles at home! So, another day of waiting but soon that will be over and we can take the next step in this whole thing. We are mentally prepared and know what to expect except this time I have a feeling this will be even harder to hand her over for surgery. We have gotten to know our princess and her wonderful personality. It will be rough to see her with all the tubes and wires and not having her smile at us. However, she should be good as new in no time. We thank God that we have gotten this far and rejoice in the fact that we still have her. She is a blessing for sure!
Currently she is on 3 liters of oxygen and her oxygen saturation are sill inthe high 60's for the most part. So, that is the reason for us still being admitted. No IV's just yet, just monitors. After the news today, we are going to run some errands so that later we won't have to leave our baby's bedside.
We would like to again thank everyone for their uplifting words and prayers for our daughter and family. Words can't describe how much that means to us.
Next post will be later today.....
Love, Suzie

Hi Suzie!
I am a friend of Rebecca and learned about Lindsay through Annabelle's site. Our son, Luke, is an HLHS angel playing with Annabelle right now. I just wanted to let you know that we have been praying for Lindsay each night and that we are praying even harder for her this week. She is such a beauty and I know she brings such joy to your family. I just wanted to let you know that your family is being prayed for here in Tennessee! God bless!
