Here we go

We were just kicked out so that they could close her chest, we are optimistic about it. Hopefully there won't be many complications, if any. It should only take an hour, so we should be able to see Gracie in about an hour and half if all things go well. She had a really good morning, still peeing like crazy which is good because her belly and limbs are still quite puffy.

As we were leaving, Bonnie--the nurse practitioner asked Dr. Kourteaus when she should tell the NICU they will be up for the next surgery, his response, "um, I'm not going to say because I don't want to jinx it." Seriously that is kind of funny, even the surgeons know nothing is routine with our little Gracie.

We'll keep you all posted.

Keeping pumping out the liquid gold little one. I am hopeful that the closure will work and she can continue to be stable and recover. Keeping you ALL in my thoughts and prayers.
