Prayers Please

Charlotte Amalie has been scheduled for surgery to close her PDA on Monday. The NICU did another echo after putting her on the vent and they saw that the PDA had grown from 1 mm to 3 mm. A CHOP cardiac surgeon and surgery team will be coming out on Monday to perform the operation.

Her doctors are going to try another round of medicine to try to close the duct. The CHOP surgeon will come out to evaluate her on Sunday night. If the medicine has closed the duct then the surgery can be called off.

So any prayers or good vibes our way are appreciated this weekend. If she can avoid this surgery we'd all be better off.

Thanks!
