Surgery......again

The surgical staff just took Lindsay down to the OR to put in a larger central shunt. She currently has a 3.5 and they are going to upgrade to a 4.0. Please pray that this turns everything around and fixes her issue with her lungs and not being able to get enough oxygenated blood into them. This should be a less invasive, if that is even possible!!, because they don't have to stop the heart and cool it before they operate. This is a good thing. There is still bypass however. They will also be able to get the fluid on her left lung out that the chest tube wasn't able to get. We got here this morning and they had taken that one out because it didn't work. I will update as we hear.
Pray, Pray , Pray....because if this doesn't work, which we should be able to tell in the next day or two, I'm not sure what the next step is.
Love to all!
Suzie

Suzie, I know that updating all of us out here is not your primary concern... but know that there are hundreds of us out here thinking about you. Our entire office is stalking this sight. Keep your heads up, stay strong, and know that any of us are willing to do anything that we can to help. We all feel so helpless at this time!!! Please let us know if there is anything that is needed. Lisa & Crew

Found you totally randomlym and admit to lurking as well! RANDOM if God has such a word - I pray for you, and especially for the docs - for wisdom, sound judgment, strong and open communications among them and you, for everyone who touches your baby girl or who touches any THING that touches her. I am praying for all those hands, that they are sure but gentle, strong and steady. I pray that they are as bold as need be and as cautious as necessary. I pray that they are truly God's hands touching your baby. And I pray that you feel yourself carried along the prayers of many
