CHOP Trip #1 - Off we go....

So...we leave for our first appointment at Philly tomorrow. Lil will stay with friends - and I know she will be fine, but it is so, so hard to leave her, I don't like it!!! (THANK YOU - Leanne, Phil, Elisa and Jeremiah)

Our day at CHOP beings at 7:30 a.m. on Monday - another level III ultrasound and another echo-cardiogram -same as our UVA visits with some new doctors, of course. I don't expect them to tell us much more than we know now. Once she is born they can really figure out the anatomy of her heart....but until then it is kinda guess work to some degree (see earlier posts).

We plan to relocate to Philly in early March (maybe around the 5th). Her due date is April 8th. We pray that she will have her surgery within 7 days after she is born (as I understand at the moment, it depends on her over-all condition as when she can undergo the surgery - so be praying for a healthy, strong little girl who's ready for them to fix her heart asap!) We'll meet the surgeon on Monday and I'm sure find out a lot more about what's ahead...



  1. I wish you could hear my children pray for you and Gwenyth! We pray, friends. Please know that.

  2. I have found your blog! Finally :) You know we're all praying...

  3. It is good to read all of this. It helps me to know how you are feeling and how to best pray for you. Love you!



Ten years loom and as always seems to be the case, I find myself struggling the most in the days ahead of the anniversary  - be it her birt...
