We have a surgery date for Sarah and it is this Tuesday - August 4th at 11:30am at Sick Children's Hospital in Toronto. We are planning on traveling down on the Monday and staying over night at a hotel. The hospital has been very good at calling us and trying to tell us what to expect on the day of the surgery - the latest information we have is that Sarah will be in the hospital between 5 to 7 days. Once this surgery is done she will have to have a second surgery 2 to 3 weeks after the first surgery but I expect we won't know that date until this surgery is completed. We will be able to stay with Sarah the entire time and one parent can stay overnight in the room which has made us feel so much better since we haven't left her with anyone since we got her in March. We are expecting the surgery to be very hard on Mommy and Daddy - not that Sarah is going to enjoy it but Sick Kids are known for making it as easy as possible for the kids. The good part is that she most likely will not have any memory of it when she gets older.
Since Sarah may still be in the hospital and not feeling the greatest we decided to have her birthday party tomorrow so I'll post some pictures of the party before we leave for Toronto.
Hannah’s 9th Birthday!
