So after that bombshell, I was pretty scared and cried most of the way to the hospital, sure that I would never see my little girl alive and well. But, lo and behold, before I even got to the hospital parking lot, the doctor called me again and said that they were already done, and that Elsie was fine. I love doctors!
The operation was performed through a small incision on her left side. They spread her ribs apart, moved her left lung out of the way, and somehow reached the vein and clamped it shut. Her blood pressure is a little low, so they are giving her medication to bring it back up, and she is also receiving pain medication to allow her to rest and heal without being in pain.
Thank you for your many prayers, kind words, and positive thoughts. We couldn't do it without you!
