Please pray for Ava as she is waiting for her catheterization! She hasn’t taken anything by mouth since 4 am to prepare for it, so she is hungry, but they did put an IV in for fluids and she is sound asleep right now. Hopefully they will come get her before noon – but hopefully not before daddy arrives. 🙂
For the cath they will go into a vein in her groin and send a long flexible rubber tube into her heart to do some testing to see if she is indeed ready for her next surgery. She will sedated and of course there are always risks involved, but I got down on my knees this morning and prayed for her and God has give me peace which I’m so thankful for. Ava is His and I know she is in His hands.
Ava’s cardiologist from Sick Kids came by yesterday and in his opinion this cath is being done to close to her diagnosis of influenza back in April. But he said if things don’t look favourable, not to panic, but we would just do another cath again in a few weeks. I have no idea if we will wait at home or here.
And in a surprise turn of events, our Cardiologist from London in at Sick Kids today, so he came by to see us as well which was very kind. I once again am thankful for such an amazing team of caring people who Ava has around her.
So please pray that God will guide the Dr’s hands and that they will all be astounded at how well Ava’s heart is. We would love to hear some good results so we can move forward, but on the other hand we don’t know what God’s plans for Ava are and we know that not-so-good news is also a possibility, but we will just take that as it comes.
Here’s a verse for Ava today..
Psalm 139:13-14, For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
Thank you for praying and I’ll keep you posted!
