Travel yesterday went well, two flights, one shuttle ride and a clean hotel, not much more you could ask for. Emery's highlight was the pizza at SEATAC.
THis morning we got to the hospital at 6:30 and have finished the chest x-ray, blood work, lab work, echocardiogram, and will still have an EKG and meetings with the surgery team. Emery is doing great, she doesn't like bloodwork but was brave and stayed calm. She got an angel beanie baby bear for being so good during a very long in depth echo so she is a happy camper right now.
Lucile Packard Children's hospital has a really cool feature on their website. www.lpch.org. You can send a greeting card email and they will print it out and deliver it to Emery's room. Her name is Emery Min Mattson. I think surgery starts at 6:30 tomorrow morning and will be all day. thank you for your prayers, we feel and appreciate them.
