Our appointment for Bennett's echo in Philly is scheduled for next Wednesday morning. After talking with the Nurse Practitioner that schedules the surgeries and voicing our concerns about a sedated echo she explained that Bennett will need a sedated echo at some point before his surgery. Doing a sedated echo gives them the clearest picture before going into open heart surgery and they want to see exactly what they are dealing with.
Of course we do want them to have as much knowledge as possible before proceeding with the surgery so we agreed to do the sedated echo. Mike will be out of town but thankfully my parents are going to drive up and my dad will drive with me down to Philly while my mom watches the girls. I honestly don't know how I would get everyone to CHOP by 8:30 Wednesday morning without help so this is a huge relief.
If you will, please pray that everything goes well during the echo and that the doctors can get a clear picture of exactly what they need and how they need to proceed.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
