She is still in surgery but Josh just stepped in to inform us that all was going well. They found a piece of her small bowel that was as narrow as a small finger.....no wonder, huh? All is still going good but Dr. Shilyanski thinks the surgery will be yet another 4 hours. When I saw Josh had a huge smile on his face I felt a little relief. (Plus I took a Zanax a half an hour before. I had to relieve some of this anxiety.)
More good news was that the doctor thought Ava's intestines WERE ready for suregery. Isn't God amazing. Things are falling together. So now we are going to get some lunch and he is going to update us in another two hours.
To think that my baby is lying there open with her intestines laying on top of her is gut rentching but I know this is what has to be done to get her better.
I told Josh that if something would go wrong and she was going to die to PLEASE get ahold of us so that we could say goodbye to her. I know this might sound bizarre but it is something that is running through my head and I have to express.
I'm somewhat relieved that things are going good. Continue to pray that they stay in a good direction. Thanks for all the messages. They make a HUGE difference to us. They help lift our spirits so much. Love to you all!
