Chrissie got prepped in pre-op, then on to cardiac surgery pre-op where Dr. Porisch, our God-sent cardiologist, prayed over Chrissie, which brought Daddy to tears, but filled our hearts with the comfort of our Father who has brought Chrissie to this day, our little miracle.
At 7:30AM, the anesthesiologist gave Chrissie a "cocktail", which made her giggle and be totally loopy. at 7:45AM, they wheeled Chrissie of to the operating room. She cried a little, but her cocktail made her relax as we kissed her goodbye and loved on her one last time before her surgery.
Around 8:45AM, we were notified that they were able to intubate her and get 3 lines in her veins and they got her bladder catheter in as well without any problems. The cardiac surgeon had made his incision at that time, and we were told that they would notify us when she was hooked up to the heart lung bypass machine.
Thank you for praying for our sweet girl!!!
