Abby's surgeon, Dr. Heinle, was called into a heart transplant this evening, which will push Aberdeen's surgery to Wednesday. Numbers in the ICU look better this week, so hopefully everything will work out for an admission tomorrow evening, and surgery on Wednesday. I actually feel good about this change of schedule, not sure why, but I'll take the peace of mind. Though this past week has been full of ups and downs, this is apparently par for the course when you aren't already inpatient and looking at an emergency surgery. We just haven't been on this side of things before. We don't feel frustrated currently and know that if Aberdeen were the one receiving a new heart, we would fully expect everyone else to be bumped for her. We'll just set our sights on Wednesday for now and keep the families involved in tonight's transplant in our thoughts and prayers.
Thank you all for sticking with us through this saga. We appreciate you!
