Today is the Day - Surgery Update # 1

Today is the day we have waited for since September of 2010. Our morning began bright and early and by 6:00am we were already at the hospital with a very sleepy but happy little girl.

By 6:20 we were back in the pre op holding area. Elle did great getting her pulse ox and blood pressure taken. So good, in fact, that she got to play with two blue gloves while we waited for the anesthesiologist and surgical teams. Elle is such a super trooper! She said "good morning" to every nurse and doctor that stopped by her bed and had a smile for each of them.

Right before 7:00am, Elle was given some medicine to make her sleepy and by 7:10, we were saying our goodbyes to our precious little angel. The anesthesiologist picked Elle up and she fell asleep on his shoulder as they were walking through the big double doors and into the operating room. It will probably be a few hours before we receive any news from the operating room.

Our continuous prayer is that God's name be glorified in all that we do and in all that Dr. Morales and his surgical team do. We pray for the Lord to watch over Elle and her doctors and nurses before, during and after surgery and for God's amazing power and strength to be felt in the operating room and in the waiting room while we wait for updates. "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10
