Heart Surgery in the Morning...

We have been up at the hospital since 3:30 this afternoon to have Reid admitted and prepared for surgery in the morning and only now getting back home. I had this whole wonderful "The night before heart surgery..." post I was going to write, but, for now just a quick note to ask for prayer and I will write more detail later of our special moments leading up to surgery. Surgery time for Reid has been switched now to 7:30 AM. Toby decided to stay the night with Reid so I could get home and get a good night's sleep....Thanks Toby! Luke has already fallen asleep but not before telling me he was going to sleep with Reid's Blue's Clue's pajamas he found laying on the bed. He is seriously curled up with these PJ bottoms next to his cheek.

Reid was all smiles for the nurses and ever so flirtatious! We ended up in the same room we had for surgery #1 a year ago....only this time Reid was walking back and forth in his crib and flung one leg over the top trying to escape! He is such a big boy now!

We are praying for a full repair of his mitral valve and to close up a hole between his heart chambers.

Thanks for checking in on our little Reid!

We are on the other side of the world, but one day we could be going through the same thing. We will be praying for you all, and know that all will be well :) Onwards and upwards.

Love the Simons Family

I was thinking of you this morning as I was driving in to work, remembering the date. I decided to check in before starting work, to see if by any chance you had posted anything and there it is!

Thank you for the update. Loads of good vibes are travelling all the way from Ireland to California.

Let us know how he is doing. :-)
