If you are reading this blog right now please pray. Sarah went into surgery several minutes after 9am EST. I just got the first update and everything seems to be going well.
We apologize for not getting more news up last night, but our priority on returning to the hotel last night was to spend a little quality time with Naomi. She and Grammy Norton had a great day yesterday playing with books and toys and watching videos (mainly the Lion King right now) and wandering the halls of our hotel. I think Naomi has said "hi" to and perhaps tried to help all of the housekeeping/maintenance/management staff and seems to have quite a future in the hotel business! :)
Our power did go out last night for several hours and we needed to try to get some sleep for an early morning today. Sarah and I returned to the hospital a little before 7am for pre-surgery prep (blood drawn, EKG, another ultrasound, etc...). Sarah is handling this incredibly well - she is smiling and putting people at ease and is incredibly brave about the surgery she is going into (more about that in the next post).
I will be posting later this morning about the rest of yesterday's appointments and throughout the day as we have updates and more news to share.
Thanks for being part of this journey with us!
