Reiss, Mama Gay, Mama Cindy and myself are in Houston, Texas now. We arrived on Saturday, gave blood on Sunday, and are now killing time until Reiss’ pre-op appointments on Tuesday morning.
Starting at 8am on tomorrow morning, Reiss will get the following done: blood pressure, temperature, pulse reading, height, weight, pulse ox, x-ray, echo, and lab draws. We will also visit with the EP team, anesthesia, her cardiologist and surgeon. Sometime during the day, the team will give us our instructions on when surgery will be on Wednesday.
Please pray that Reiss can stay well from now, through surgery, on our way home, and throughout her 6 weeks of quarantine post-surgery.
We also pray that Dr. McKenzie is able to repair her valve (instead of having to replace), and that her right ventricle responds positively with the squeeze her body needs to continue.
