Tomorrow morning is Hope's MRI, we'll finally know what's going on inside her. The specialists have talked about the MRI as though it will finally show us why she was in the hospital last week and what is happening with her heart. We're looking forward to some clarity with her condition and are also thankful that she'll be presented to the surgical board. We're not very excited about her being put to sleep for the procedure though.
Please pray for Hope tomorrow. Her MRI will begin at 9am, so she'll likely be put to sleep just after 8:30 or so. The MRI is supposed to take 1.5 hours and she should wake up 20-30 minutes after it's finished. Please pray that she will not have any problems with her breathing and they won't have a reason to intubate her. Please pray that she won't have any side effects from the medication and will wake up easily without any complications. Knowing how I feel before this MRI, I can't imagine how I'll feel when we have to hand her over to the surgeon in Edmonton for her second surgery. This journey sure tests a mothers strength some days!
If you happen to be up late reading this, please pray that I'm able to get some sleep tonight and that anxiety doesn't keep me awake.
