Time to Close the Belly

Well, it was at 1pm, then at 3pm, then 3:30pm, and now at 4:44pm, I think the surgeons are getting closer to getting ready to start. From what the surgeons have told me, this "surgery" is fairly straight forward, but as parents, we freak out any time surgeons are involved with our newborn. Hopefully, they will do what is planned without any complications. I am told it will take about an hour, but as you can tell from the first sentence, things don't always turn out as expected. We don't rush surgeons! We love them!

I'll post again when everything is done-Carissa

    Praying for you day and night...

    Love you Avery,
    Dai from Cali.

  12. Continuing to pray for and think of Avery & you.

    I'll admit, I'm growing increasingly worried that something bad has happened since there has been no update. I pray that is not the case, of course, and that I'm fretting for nothing.

    Anyhow, will continue to pray and check for an update.

  13. Still praying for you and your family.
