Tomorrow (Thursday) is the BIG DAY!

It is still "a go" for Juliet's surgery tomorrow. She had her eyes examined yesterday and the opthomologist said they have improved and he was OK with her going to surgery. She is on the OR schedule for 11:30am. The surgery could last 4-5 hours. The current plan is to put in a Broviac catheter (a type of central line since they couldn't get a PICC line put in), perform her intestinal reanastamosis/ostomy take-down (to reconnect her intestine), and attempt to repair her hernia (while they are in there). They are going to wait until they get her to the OR to put her on the ventilator. It is going to be a LONG surgery. Chris & I plan to be there the entire day. As with her last surgery, I will attempt to update the blog as soon as possible.

(I finally remembered to bring in my camera! As you can see by the picture below, Jules was pretty bored with my photo shoot. :) )

I wanted you to see what her stomas looked like without the ostomy bag on them. After tomorrow, they will be gone!

She is telling you this will be her 4th surgery. :) (Actually, she found her thumb and was having a snack!)
She LOVES her "WUBANUB". It helps her hold in her pacifier! Thanks Linda!

Her "big girl" crib. I kept forgetting to take a picture of it.
