Dr Bliss used a good analogy – it is like Finley getting struck by lightening, not once, but twice. Surgery is set for Monday at 11:15 – checking in at 8:15 AM. Should be fun not giving a baby anything to eat from midnight on… I think that means that we will be up very early.
Good news is that she has the more common type of cyst. Dr Bliss is going to start the surgery laproscopically but transition to open if it looks like it won’t be the best route. There are 2 ways to do this surgery a newer way and a more traditional approach and we have decided to go the traditional route. We don’t feel that there has been enough long term study with the new technique since it has only been done in the state this way for the past 2-3 years whereas the traditional way has 30-40 years of experience.
So that’s all I have in me for now – we appreciate you continuing to hold Finley in your prayers.. God has taken care of her so far, so I have to believe he will continue her healing and miraculous journey. This is the verse I had on her crib in the NICU and I will continue to pray this for Finley. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
What a story Finley will have to tell….
Thank you for all the continued prayers, love and support. You have helped us more than you will ever know.
