All ready but no surgery

Hello all. We just got back from the hospital and Charlie is doing great. They swapped out his oscillating respirator for the more conventional one that is required for surgery. Though his stats look great even with this change they want him to remain stable for the night and then do the surgery on Tuesday. So he is on the schedule for 1 pm Tuesday.

We were disappointed as we had prepared mentally for a very tough day and now we have to do it all over again tomorrow. Oh well, slow and steady will win this race. 

Thank you all for the kind words and prayers. They have lifted our spirits more than you can imagine. We will be in touch.

Tonight was the first night when I was praying for Charlie that I didn't almost say Gumdrop!

Continuing to pray for all of you!
