The Twelfth Hour...

It has now been twelve hours since Vivian was taken back, and we are still waiting. Earlier this evening (5:55pm) tThe surgeon was bringing Vivian up off the heart-lung machine, and the pressure was getting too high in her right back onto the bypass machine she went. Dr. Davis had to go back in and put a hole in the patch between the ventricles to relieve the pressure. It's possible the patch could have to be removed altogether.

7:30pm Well, we just got the good new that Vivian is now off the heart-lung machine. Now they are monitoring Vivian for the oozing type bleeding to stop. They have currently told us Vivian will be back here with us in the PICU about 9pm. The nurses are referring to this as a "big case."

We are surprised by the length of the surgery and are anxious for the news updates we get periodically. And, we are a little tired...a long day.

Hope to post again soon about confirming that Vivian is done.

He will not let you foot slip-he who watcher over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you- the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm- he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forever more." Psalm 121

    Want you guys to know we are praying for your strength and strength for little Vivian to overcome this surgery.
