8/11/09 Day before surgery at Ronald McDonald House8/12/09 Day of Noelle's surgery (aortic valve replacement and Konno procedure). This is where we waited for the anesthesiologist before they took her back. The location of the infamous Versed spitting incident!
Listening to the iPod helped Noelle feel calmer and she could tune out all of the doctors.
Zman fell asleep (eating his "Cheetas" as he calls them) while waiting for his big sis to get out of surgery.
Post-surgery in the ICU. She has her breathing tube in, 3 IVs, 3 chest tubes, pacer wires, and a partridge in a pear tree! ;0)
8/14/09 Friday- Nap time after getting her ventricular pacer wires out. It was a little ouchy but she did great.

Just checked your page and glad to see that things are going so well. We will keep praying for the great recovery and endurance for the parents. Hold on to the verses that remind you that it is God in you that you can do what you do. Hug your girl for us.
