Starting Tomorrow--It's Time for the 2nd Repair

Elmo!! (Hey, is that a double chin I spy on Miss Charlotte?!)

The week we've been anticipating with dread since June 2005 (when we brought Charlotte home from the hospital) begins tomorrow.

At 9:00 a.m. we will take Charlotte to Children's Memorial Hospital for her pre-op testing. We'll meet with Julie, our Advanced Practice Nurse extraordinaire, who will walk us through the surgery (again), then Charlotte has blood tests and x-rays to provide basic information in advance of the surgery.

Elmo, meet Elmoooooooo!!

We'll keep everyone posted via the blog. Please feel free to leave messages or send emails, but don't be dismayed if we don't respond personally to each of you right away. We thank you in advance for your good wishes (and for the cards, emails and care packages we've already received.) Your friendship and support got us through this once; we're counting on it to give us strength again.
