Scarlette's Surgery Date is set!

Hey all~

We have been super busy with tons of doctors appointments but I just wanted to write really quickly to say that Scarlette's surgery is on November 25! We go tomorrow to be cleared for surgery by the cardiologist, then we have cleft palate clinic where a team of specialists gets to work with us and Scarlette and teach us about all the different aspects of cleft. It's a five hour clinic but it should be very helpful and answer a lot of our questions. Then we have a urology appointment, a follow-up with our pediatrician, we get to meet with the pulmonologist and the home nurse will be visiting on Thursday. Then Friday we have our pre-op meeting with the surgeon at Children's hospital and hopefully miss Scarlette will not have any more appointments until her surgery on Wednesday! She will be in the pediatric intensive care unit following her surgery, I am not sure how long but probably until the Sunday after Thanksgiving. We are sad our baby has to be in the hospital for her first Thanksgiving, but even so we have SO much to be thankful for and are so glad that they are not waiting on performing her hernia repair. Please keep her in your prayers, ask for her strength as well as ours, we have heard that your child being in surgery is one of the hardest things a parent will go through, and we are trying to prepare ourselves! Love to all, and we will keep updating!
