Well we were selected for prenatal surgery today. It has been a very emotional day, making the decision and then finding out that we were selected. I am actually going to be having the surgery tommorow at 11:00 am. I am very anxious about it and the most sad about not getting to see Zander beforehand. It seems very sudden, but I guess this way I don't have to worry about it another day. So basically Iwill be checking into the hospital tomorrow morning and will have the surgery at 11. The surgery usually takes around 1 1/2 hours. For the first 24 hours we are told that I will mostly sleep and be feeling like I got hit by a truck. Then every day following I should begin to feel a little bit better. I will hopefully be discharged back to the Ronald McDonald house 4-5 days later and be on strick bedrest for the first 2-3 weeks. I will then remain here in Philly for the remainder of my pregnancy (hopefully until at least October) until Grayden is born. So it will be a long haul, but we are excited and feel this is the best thing that we can do for Grayden's future. It will be a big sacrifice now, but we are hoping it is worth it in the end. Well I will update more later, or Austin will update tomorrow when I am done with the surgery. For now we are going to try to go out and enjoy a date night on the town:)
Grayden's 9th Birthday!
