We had a VERY long day today and we are now preparing for tomorrow. I can't believe I just started packing for this! I have been completely overwhelmed by all the messages, posts, texts, prayers, and love from you all and I want you all to know how much it means to me and our family. I will try my best to keep the blog updated as we go through this process again. Looking forward to the other side.
Avery Alexandra was born on October 14, 2009. She has had many health issues to battle in her short life and this blog is for our family and friends to stay updated on her progress. We also want to document this process for other families to view who may be going through the same experience. We thank you all for your continued love & support..♥♥

Surgery is ON for Tomorrow
After 7 hours at Rady Children's Hospital and meeting with her Cardiologist for an EKG, her Pediatrician and getting her lab work done, Avery has been officially cleared for surgery tomorrow. Her heart was perfect today and Avery was eating better today and her stomach virus seems to be done. All of her Doctors and surgeons assured me that she is cleared for surgery. While she is under anesthesia, they will put a catheter in to get a urine sample for some of the testing they will be doing for her hypoglycemia. She also had lab work today for her pre-0p and for her extra tests checking for various conditions that may be causing the hypoglycemia (the results will take a few weeks). While she is there, she will be on IVs and be getting all the nutrients she needs so her glucose levels shouldn't be an issue.
