Ellis Anne has developed a runny nose over the past couple of days (no fever), and after the anesthesiologist knew that and combined it with her heart history, as well as her having down syndrome, he advised that we not do the surgery. This particular surgery requires her to be intubated and he was concerned that she may have some breathing problems coming off of the vent. Obviously, we took the doctor's advice and we will reschedule in the next couple of weeks (or when the doctor can squeeze us in since this is not an emergency).
As I said in the first paragraph, we were reminded of Ellis Anne's health and how fragile she is with her heart history. Ellis Anne's heart is doing so well and she is on ZERO medications...so, I think it took us a bit by surprise that the doctor advised us to wait. We are so thankful to God for the doctors and that they really do put Ellis Anne's health first -- they do not want to take any chances and neither do we.
We are headed home!!!!
