Default Egleston childrens hospital.

We are headed back(April 18) for Heart surgery 2(April 19) for my baby girl Jamie(granddaughter).The 1st she had at age 4 months and that was rough on us.It didn't bother her as much as it did us.This one is supposed to be less dangerous than the 1st but she is almost 3 and has PAAPAA down pat. It just rips through my heart seeing her with those tubes down her throat and nothing I can do for her.She is supposed to be in ICU for 3 days with the respirator on her and then in a room for at least 3 days before we come back home.The people at the hospital are the nicest I have ever encountered.The nurses love their job,you can tell they are not there just for a paycheck,and I know she will be in good hands with them.All prayers would be appreciated. As the time draws nearer it just puts a little more concern in me for her safety.Thank you all for your prayers and support.

"and nothing I can do for her"

That's the toughest part, having to place her welfare into anothers hand. Know that she will be in good hands while at Egleston Childrens Hospital, I've heard nothing but good about them. Will keep your granddaughter in my prayers and also her family.

His eye is on the sparrow, and Jamie too. We trust in him that she will do just fine, and comfort all of you.

Thanks again everyone.The surgery went thru with everything looking good.She looks good if all the stuff was off her.She will be in CICU for 2 or 3 days if everything goes as plan.The DR. hopes to wean her off the ventilator as early as in the morning.She will be in stepdown unit for a few days after CICU.The Lord has been good and blessed us with everything with surgery and all the prayers of friends unknown.May God bless each and every one of you.

She is doing good just doesn't want to eat or drink much.They have an IV giving her fluids and she is talking a lot more now.We are going to get her up and let her walk some.That will help to get her moving around instead of laying in bed all day.All prayers are appreciated.
Thanks
