One of the hardest parts is the not eating or 6 hours prior to surgery. It is so hard because she just doesnt understand why we arent feeding her! Last tiem she just cried and cried. This is hard for us, because Livi just isn't a crier! Poor sweetie. It makes me really feel for unfortunate mothers who do not have enough food to feed to their babies....I can't even imagine :(

Say some prayers....
...for our sweet little Olivia tonight. She goes in tomorrow for her second surgery on her airway. This one shouldn't be as serious as the first one, so I am confident that everything will go just fine. They will be putting her under and going in again through her mouth. This time the doctor will remove some of the extra skin at the base of her esophagus. The skin has grown in an irregular way due to the mass that was there when she was born. The mass was removed 6 weeks ago. The doctor will make sure that he got all of that out, and that it is not growing back. We will be in PCIU for one night minimum, for observation. I am REALLY hoping that we will only be there for one night and than we can come home on Wednesday. Cross you fingers and say some prayers for our little peanut!!
