She's in the OR!
Hope was taken into the OR at noon today and her surgery is now underway. We've been told to wait outside the PICU in 4 hours and wait for Dr. Ross to come and update us on how the surgery has gone. We've been warned that 4 hours is a total guess and it could take 6 hours, so we'll try to stay calm no matter how long we need to wait. We truly feel the prayers that are going out for us around the world, we truly have a strong sense of peace. Although there were tears as Hope was wheeled away, we still felt very at peace and were fairly composed. Ten minutes before they took Hope, she opened her eyes and was looking right at us! This was truly a miracle with the sedatives that she's on, we will cherish those moments of looking into our little girls eyes before she went into surgery. This is the first of at least 3 surgeries, only the beginning of our journey but we know that God will carry us through to the end. We'll update you all as soon as we get a chance, thank you for praying.
