Today is a big day for Emma! She will be having a 4 hour surgery to reduce some of the blood flow to the lungs. This is very ironic since they did a surgical procedure yesterday to make more blood flow to the lungs. The blood flow amount is crucial in any baby, but especially in an HLHS baby. This procedure should be very helpful in the next big surgery (the Norwood). Please keep Emma in your prayers today as well as the doctors performing the surgery.
Specific Prayer Requests:
1. The surgeon will be able to put the bands on successfully.
2. Her lungs will be nice and strong
3. The rest of her testing, including her brain look good or at least manageable
4. Emma will easily stabilize post surgery and will be ready to conquer the next step.
Thank you for the continued prayers and support!
Emma's Mommy (Sarah)
