Just wanted to send out a quick update. We made it to New Jersey safely and, though it was a long 11 hour drive, Elena was a road warrior! Not one fuss out of our awesome girl. We saw the doctor yesterday morning and he still wasn’t sure upon examination what procedure she will have. He thought it best to wait until he had her under anesthesia to really check the stability of her hip socket. Her surgery is first one tomorrow morning at 7:30am. It’s going to be an incredibly long day for us and an unimaginably difficult one for Elena, so your prayers are appreciated. We feel very at peace with whatever procedure she has to have and have full confidence in Dr. Nuzzo. We just hate that our precious five year old has to endure this.
We have had a fun couple of days with her and are glad to see her so happy. And she has been SO HAPPY. For her fifth birthday present, we took her to see The Lion King on Broadway in NYC yesterday, and needless to say, she loved it. It was a special treat for our girl. We are slowing things down a bit today in anticipation of tomorrow’s exhaustion.
Thanks for all who are praying, sending encouraging words, love and even helping at home. We couldn’t make it without everyone’s support! And lastly, we miss Cal terribly but know he’s loving all the attention from his grandparents.
