Surgery

It's official: Elle's surgery will take place the morning of December 10 at Children's Hospital in Boston. We are going down for a pre-op interview on the 8th and will be there until at least the 15th for Elle's recovery.


This is good news. And still it guts you. You know you've made the right decision to have the surgery...but you are removing your daughter's lung. It brings up a dozen different emotions at once and they all conflict with one another. If anything makes it easier, it is Elle's attitude. Her fight and spirit through all of this has been awe-inspiring. But it's hard.


So please keep us all (and Elle especially) in your thoughts. And send as much positive energy as possible her way on the 10th.
