this chapter began...

Thanks for stopping back by our blog. WE hope you all are doing well and enjoying your week.

So today the jouney began again. Elijah went in for all of his pre-surgery work. ECHO, EKG, x-ray, bloodwork, cardiology, anestesia...EVERYTHING checked out wonderfully! So, we are all set for surgery in the am at 7:30. We have to be at the hospital at 6:15 and he will go on call between 6:30 and 7 am. Everyone that comes will have the chance to see him for a few minutes and then he will go in!

It has been a very difficult week. A rollercoaster ride actually. My emotions have been all over the place. But, I have to say that today jason and I both are doing okay so far. We are trying so hard not to panic and are succeeding as of right now. Later may be a different story! For now though we are just hanging with the kids and having fun together.
Don't forget to check out Elijah's carepage for updates throughout the day tomorrow and his recovery. The page is www.carepages.com and his page name is EliPalmer. That is the BEST way to stay up to speed on all of the excitment with him.

Well, I am gonna go for now. I want to spend some time with my kiddos!
