Quarantine ended today! Yay!! Grandparents arrived today to help us as we prepare for Chase's surgery. The kids were SO excited to see them!!! We had a productive day, including some errands, a home haircut for Chase and a dinner date for hubs and I! While we're no longer officially in quarantine, we still must be diligent in keeping Chase away from germs and sick individuals. But hugs & squeezes from grandparents are a-okay!!
Tomorrow we have a full day of pre-op scheduled: temp, o2, BPs (x4), chest X-ray, echocardiogram, EKG and a blood draw. We will meet with the anesthesiologists and our surgeon, Dr. Bradley. We also plan to take Chase to the Atrium (ginormous play room) for a bit as well. It'll be a long, exhausting day, but we're bringing plenty of distractions to help Chase get through the day.
Please pray for us tomorrow as we work through the pre-op requirements. Please pray they don't find anything that could potentially delay this surgery... elevated temp or white blood count (signs of a possible infection), etc. We need a clean bill of health to sign off and make Chase's Fontan a "Go!" As much as I'm dreading this, I know it's what he needs and we just need to get through it so he can be stronger & healthier.
Thank you for your prayers! And don't forget -- you can send well wishes to Chase at the address below! Thank you for your support!
