This will be Wendy's third surgery in her short 12 month long life. It doesn't get any easier. In fact, I think my heart is aching more for her now than it was for her surgeries at 3 days old and 6 weeks old. I am much more attached to my baby girl now and since we have had her home for so long it is going to be hard to take her back to a hospital.
After Zed talked to Dr. Wulkan yesterday, her new surgeon, we decided to go ahead with the surgery as originally planned. Wendy will not have a team of surgeons now, nor the MRI in the middle of surgery. We would have liked to have the more extensive surgery however, they have been trying for 6 months to coordinate schedules and it was just not happening. We, including the surgeon, decided it would be better to go ahead as first planned because the older Wendy gets the harder it's going to be for her. So we are now scheduled for Monday at Egelston.
I'm going to make the best of this weekend! We are going to do some photos in her Halloween costume and carve some pumpkins! But come Monday, please keep sweet in your thoughts and prayers. Hoping for a quick recovery so we can be back home soon.
PS- thanks to everyone who came to Wendy's party or sent a gift! We appreciate it so much. She had a wonderful first birthday.
