And So it Begins

Today was a mix of some really great moments as a family and some really hard and long doctors' appointments. We had a great time enjoying Caroline and spending all the time we could with her. She is such a joy and we can't wait for her to be healthy and strong.

Feeling good and strong for surgery tomorrow!

Its so great to have Dad home to hang out with us during the day!

Caroline was so brave through a long afternoon of pokes, prods, and tests.
The surgery is scheduled for 12:15 tomorrow afternoon. They say the surgery usually takes about 4 hours to complete. The surgery team will page us periodically throughout the procedure to let us know how she is doing. We'll try to update the blog as often as possible to pass along the news. We really appreciate all of the love and support we have received through out this process. We know Caroline is going to do great, but we'd gladly take all the prayers and support we can get tomorrow!
Leslie & Mike
