Surgery tomorrow at noon

We got the call today that Lucy's surgery is a go at noon tomorrow. We have to be at the hospital at 8:00 am for pre-op. I think we'll leave the house pretty early to allow for morning traffic and give us time to get settled and feed Lucy one last time. The surgery will be about 5 hours long and she'll be in the ICU for 2-3 days until they take the breathing tube out at which point she'll be moved upstairs to the less critical hospital floor.

Please join us in prayer during the surgery for God to guide the hands of the surgeons and give them wisdom in how to repair her heart. Please pray for comfort for our family, that we would not be anxious and would be praising God in advance for healing our little Luce.

We had a GREAT day at home including playing in the snow that fell early this morning and taking Lucy to see a movie (Juno) and to meet some of Chris' co-workers. We also had our super talented friend Kim take some professional photos of Lucy before her surgery (ie: before her scar). We'll post some of those later...I'm sure they'll be amazing!

We'll let you all know when Lucy is out of surgery tomorrow. And thanks again for your wonderful e-mails and phone calls. We really appreciate hearing from you and want to know what's going on in your lives as well!

Here are some photos from our great day:

Carol looks awfully mischevious while teaching Maryn about snowballs. We are praying for you guys, for the doctors today, and for a quick recovery. Lots of love,

Hi, I am friends with Erica and that is how I heard about what is going on! I just wanted you to know that I am fervently praying for you and your family!

I'm in Carol's Bible study group, and I wanted to let you know I'm praying right now for Lucy. May God be guiding the surgeon's hands. May Lucy recover in an amazingly quick way. May God bring your whole family peace right now.
