They will be using a vibrating saw to cut into little bugs chest (how scary does that sound!!!) and then they will use very small instruments to get into the pulmonary artery to do the band. He will be on the ventulator for a few days and will remain in the ICU for quite a bit longer. They will be watching him closely to make sure that he tolerates the tightness of the band and that it doesn't cause more problems. We ask for your increased prayers at 11:00am Tuesday as they prepare his little body for surgery. We should get to see him in recovery by 2:00 or 3:00pm.
Tonight Randy and I were able to give him 1 of 3 antiseptic baths that he needs before going into the operating room. I realized as I scrubbed his tiny little body with yucky smelling antiseptic that this would be the last time I would ever bathe him without seeing a scar across his chest. That made me cry to think of what he will go through in the morning. But, I know that as we send our hearts into surgery with Connor that God's heart is already there in the operating room and He will hold Connor when we cannot!!
I will write more tomorrow and I will try to add a whole pile of pics that I have been waiting to post. Daddy is working on a post at the same time as me with a couple of pics so I will let that sufice for now.
Goodnight and Lovebug Hugs,
