Today was the aquarium day.

The center tank (which is the main attraction) just re-opened yesterday after a 10-month renovation project.  How's that for timing?  I thought it would be better to head down there around lunchtime (versus being there when they opened) since that's when most people would probably be leaving.  We took the train, which she was excited about.  But there was still a very long line.  We stood in it for about 30 seconds, when an employee came up to us and told us that we could go straight inside and purchase our tickets.  They are so awesome there.  And then, inside, they only charged us for Tom and I and not her.  Awesome.

Yes, we had hand sanitizer and used it often. After there we wanted to take her to the carousel, but it's under construction and re-opens Labor Day.

Surgery is scheduled for 8:30am, and we need to be there at 7am.  At this point, I don't know if it will happen.  We got a humidifier for the room.  The thing that kills me is that if we were home, she wouldn't get like this because I would have already upped her support.  Well, she was FINE before coming up, so maybe she caught something on the plane.  Maybe she's just dealing with the dry air.  Who knows.

We've come this far, might as well give her another night and see how she is in the morning.  I'll let them listen to her lungs, take her temp and see what they think.  I'm tired of thinking about it.

I'll let you know what happens.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!
Much love,
Christy xoxo

Man, I'm pulling for you all for tmrw's surgery. I know you want it more than anything right now and my prayer is that you get your wish. But I'm also praying for peace and grace to abound; for goodness throughout... I am praying that you'll look back at all of this months from now and see a Mighty Hand directing it all, all without you knowing it. That all of the blessings would make the outcome, whatever it is, more tolerable. Hang in there. Praying for you tonight, friend. Rest well.

Really hoping for a definitive decision tomorrow, that it can be a 'go' and you can be confident of that decision.

Fingers crossed that she's well enough and it goes ahead as scheduled. I'll be anxiously checking in on you in the morning and hopefully due to the time difference there will be an update saying it's done. :) Hope the saline nebs helped.
