Nora's surgery is scheduled for Monday, to start at approximately 10:00. We will be over night at least one night and then back on Friday to get her lip sutures removed. In order to proceed with surgery Nora has to be healthy. Unfortunately, little Miss has a cold right now and is rather congested, but I'm thankful to say that no more fever like earlier this week. I really think she is on the mend (and her temperament is great today ... and, she's getting into plenty of trouble ... this girl "explores" way more than any of our other children at this age ... seriously, we are going to actually need to put locks on cupboards!).
Anyhow, back to surgery. Part of me is a little excited at the thought of postponing surgery, more time with Nora just the way God made her and a Christmas without "no-no's" (arm restraints that she will need to wear after surgery, for two to three weeks, to prevent her from putting her hands and other items in her mouth). BUT, the other part of me knows that to anticipate a new surgery date and to prepare for it emotionally and psychologically would be draining. So, we will continue to pray for God's will and will continue to pray that this means surgery on Monday.
Love this girl ... and her fun Daddy
