Though Abby's numbers have evened out considerably since Thursday, she is still working too hard and hasn't completely bounced back to where she was on Tuesday. Because of all this, Abby's open heart surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. If everything goes as planned, we're looking at a late morning start-time and for the surgery to last 4-6 hours. Though we aren't looking forward to tomorrow, we hope that it helps our sweet girl and that she won't have to work so hard to simply exist anymore.
We're praying for the surgical team, the anesthesiologists, the doctors and nurses who will be caring for Abby post-op, and of course, for our baby bird.
