...My little boy's smile each and every day after this is all over. Please ignore my cheesy baby voice, I think I was just so excited he actually smiled while I was taping him. I've been trying for a while because he does it when I don't tape him but won't when I do so finally! And it's a good one! I love you so much Bennett!!
Well we're here in Philadelphia. The preop appointment went well. They did tell us that there was a chance they were going to have to reschedule the surgery due to many women going into labor with babies that would need immediate heart surgery and needed the specific surgeon we requested (told you he was the best, everyone wants him!) However, they came back in with good news and said we were still on for tomorrow morning. 6:00 am is check in and the surgery should take about 4 hours (that's with anesthesia, surgery and waking up from it) So once we turn him over to the operating room we should be able to see him 4 hours from that point. I tear up just thinking about giving him over but I know it's going to be okay.
We are specifically praying for a smooth operation with no surprises, no complications and quick healing and recovery for Bennett. And of course for God to guide the surgeons hands and to fix Bennett's heart perfectly. We hope you'll join us in these prayer requests. We want to thank everyone for being so supportive during this time and we appreciate all the prayers our family has received.
I will try to update the blog through out the day tomorrow as we get updates during his surgery. Thanks again for all your prayers!!
