We were all set to leave, yesterday, for St. Petersburg (Lu's surgery pre-admission testing was supposed to be this morning at 9am and her surgery was set for tomorrow morning) but after calling the nurse at the surgeon's office yesterday morning, they recommended we change the date since Lu had been sick the previous week.
It was pretty tough news to hear, not just because we were all packed and ready to go, but also because we had been very excited to have a healthy baby home for the holidays and ready to start the new year as a normal family. I have also been concerned about her health because she hasn't gained weight in about a month so I know that is a sign that she needs to have the surgery soon. We know we need to do whatever we can to reduce the risks of anesthesia so we have come to terms with the fact that this is what is best for Lu.
Her new surgery date is set for January 3rd.
Since we will be home for the next few weeks after all, I have put together a Holiday Gift Giving Event to help sick children, who have to spend their holidays in the hospital, have a nice Christmas. I will be accepting new toys and gifts at my house on Tuesday, 12/21 and will be delivering them to the Holmes Regional on the 22nd. I will also be accepting donations for gifts through paypal now through December 21st. You can use my email (JunebugFL82@aol.com) on the paypal site or you can visit Lu's Facebook page: Little Lu Favero and click on the Holiday Gift Giving Donations tab at the top of the page.

Thank you and Happy Holidays!
