The last few days have been a bit of a whirlwind..Our little Olivia is in need of a procedure to fix a valve in her heart. The original plan was to wait till she got a little weight on her, but her Pediatric Cardiologist has been conferring with the Pediatric Interventionist at Vanderbilt and they all feel they need to go ahead with the procedure now. There is a small hole in her heart as of right now and they really need it to stay open while doing the procedure so that there are less risks of pressure issues while doing it. They were supposed to pick her up via flight yesterday and we got bumped twice so we sat all night. They are now on there way here to pick her up this morning. A team from Vanderbilt has been sent via fixed wing (jet) to get her. In the meantime they had to start her on meds to make sure the hole stayed open and there are side effects to that medicine including apnea so they have to ventilate her for that. They have also had to do alot of blood tests thru out the night and she now must have a blood transfusion. I am very concerned as her coloring has changed and is not as good as it was before. We have the sweetest nurses and they are making sure all is well with our little Olivia. Please continue to pray for all of us, but in particular right now Olivia needs prayers as we need to get her there and get this procedure done!! Pray for Beatrice as we will be leaving her here and my parents will be the ones to visit with her while we are away with Olivia.
