Lauren is sleeping comfortably in her hospital crib so I thought I'd update again really quick!
During rounds this morning we had the same doctor as yesterday. His name is Dr. Dick so I've been referring to him as Dr. Dickhead. Not very Christ-like but hey, I'm human. I actually did like him better today! I asked him why he feels that surgery is "the sooner the better". He said that actually kids with this type of surgery that are in heart failure like she is tend not to grow until after surgery and then they do quite well. He feels that surgery is the only option to get her healthy, even though it's earlier than planned. I also asked about the risks with her being so much younger than babies typically are for this surgery. He said that we're past the huge risk age, which is the newborn period. She'll be a month old tomorrow. He said it's really not a whole lot riskier with her being a bit older, especially if we can wait until 6 weeks or older. So I honestly DO feel better about it. I did NOT expect him to set me at ease about this, but he did!
Thanks for al the prayers, we really appreciate it!
