Small update and new pics

Here are a few pictures from the weekend. Sorry I didn't post them sooner. I think I'm running on empty these days!


Getting some final snuggles in before Cath Lab.



I swear it looks like she's waving good-bye!
This was taken in the Cath Lab as I was getting ready to leave her.











Her leg when she got back from the PACU.



Her leg on Sunday, 2 days after
the Cath Lab










I still don't really know what the plan for Elaina is. She's had a fever since Sunday, so today her Cardiologist had her IJ line pulled and revised a few of her medications. He said that due to her fever, she isn't a surgery candidate at the moment, and luckily we have a little bit of leeway when it comes to planning the time. He said that he would have the surgery date for me tomorrow, but to think 2 to 4 weeks unless her condition gets worse. He told me that he's hoping to get her stable enough to maybe go home for a little while before surgery, but if we can't get her oxygen need under control she'll just stay put until they can "fix her up". I know that the Cardiologists and Surgeons have Conference on Wednesday and they discuss all the pending cases then so hopefully we'll find out a surgery date Tuesday and then surgery details on Wednesday. Basically, this is to be continued.....

Once again, I need to close with a cute picture of Ben. He was able to go to the Zoo with my Aunt and Uncle on Friday. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go with him since the Cath Lab took so long. :(
Anyway, he had a BLAST and came back with the coolest face paint. I just had to share:

Ah, the leg looks so familiar! Vaeh's always does that because her vessels spasm, but recovers quickly!

The fever sounds like she's telling them she's not ready just yet! Gotta get her two cents in!

LOVE the face paint! I can't let Gabby see or she'll "want one, Mommy!"

Keep your chin up, you're doing great! Praying that things continue to go well.

Oh...I don't like that leg at all!
That would FREAK me out...it's never happened to Isaac...I guess it happens if Tina says it happens to them.
Smoochy moochy on that cutie pie for me...and the painted face is adorable!
Tell those docs to take care of that angel!

Okay..that leg doesn't look good to me at all. At least Tina and you both have experienced this, but I would be a little concerned myself.

I agree with Tina...Elaina is just not ready for surgery yet, but she'll tell you when she is. I know its a hard road to travel but your doing great. Just keep your faith and your strength.

Look at that face paint...that is so awesome! Thanks for sharing the picture.

Hugs,

Vanessa
