God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Tina has asked me to make a quick blog update, so this is my attempt to fill everyone in.. 

Everyone arrived safely to Charleston yesterday. We had no real serious issues upon arrival except the heating system in the town home we are staying in went out.  It got a little chilly last night with the temperature dropping to around 40, but we got out a few more blankets and we're able to keep warm. Anna ended up in bed with Tina and I around 3am. Sleep was off and on but we did get a few hours of shut eye. 

We were up around 6am this morning. Tina, Anna and myself were off to the hospital around 7am, while Zachary and Mrs. Lauren stayed behind to meet the HVCA technician. I think Mrs. Lauren and Zachary might go to the Charleston Fort and beach this afternoon. I'm sure they will have a blast. 

We arrived at the hospital a hour early, which worked out well for us since we breezed through registration without any bumps. Once up in the Pre-Op room Anna finally starting giving us some issues. Up to this point she had been having fun and in a really great mood. But as soon as the nurses starting trying to get her weight and height she got very frightened. This was our first real trial this morning. It's hard to see your child so scared. 

Well, she finally calmed down enough to get her weight, height, O2 sat, EKG, and blood pressures. The nurses gave her a baby doll and medical toy kit, which caused her get into a better mood. We then took off for x-rays and the echocardiogram and she did phenomenal.  

So, now we are back in the Pre-Op room. We still have the following left for the day: Blood work (going to be tough) and then meetings with doctors. I'm sure Tina will give an update on any surprises we might find out after the meetings today. But if for some reason she doesn't, please know we desperately covet your prayers. The surgery should start early in the morning around 7am. We will try and give updates as we can.
