And so the updates begin...

9:45am - they took her back to the OR.  They came in about 9:30 and gave her Versed and Ketamine through her g-tube to help her relax and forget.  She still cried when we said goodbye, which is always hard - especially this time around.  The worst is that she is so brave.  Really and truly - so brave.  She seemed to have accepted what was going to happen, and not to fight it.  Makes me thankful and sad at the same time.  The only thing we can do is tell her we love her and hope that she remembers that, no matter what. 

Surprisingly, we slept okay last night.  I forgot to tell you that Harlie fell out of the bed on Sunday night.  The floors are vinyl over concrete (easier to keep clean for transplant patients) - so I'm sure it hurt!  My biggest fear is her g-tube coming out, since she's hooked up to a night feed.  Luckily, she wasn't all tangled in it at the moment, so it was fine.

I managed to make myself get out of bed early and go for a quick three mile run.  I really think it helped. 

So, now we wait and hope.  I will try to update here as we hear how things are going.  They are supposed to page us when she goes on the heart bypass machine, and then again when she comes off. 

Thank you so much for your outpouring of love and support!
Much love to you,
Christy

Christy, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. The first thought that came into my mind this morning when I woke up was Harlie! All of us here at Kane & Jeffries are constantly keeping each other informed. You are a remarkable family and I know you are surrounded by love and your very own special guardian angel. We love you.
