Scarlett's Surgery

I talked to my mom today who is at the hospital. She said that they took Scarlett in to surgery around 8:30 this morning. So far things are going good. They are waiting to get an update from the surgical team. They are supposed to get updates every few hours about how everything is going. Hopefully they will get it soon.

I can't imagine what it must feel like for my sister and chris to have to just wait around today. My mom said they are in the waiting room with a bunch of parents with really sick kids. Having been at the hospitals and seeing all the sick kids make me think alot about Zoey. If she had been born just a couple weeks later they could have tried to save her. This would have meant that she would be one of those sick kids and we would be the parents living at the hospital and trying to spend every moment with her we could. Part of me is glad we didn't have to go through all of that. As hard as it was to loose her I feel like it would have been even harder to see her struggle to survive and then possibly still not survive. For all those parents out there in this situation my heart goes out to you and your families.


  1. Sending you and your whole family nothing but the best thoughts, love & hugs today. I find myself glued to your blog & to your sisters for updates. I'm here if you guys need anything!~T

  2. Thank you Tory. We are just hanging out at the hospital getting updates every few hours.

  3. I'll be keeping your family and sweet Scarlett in my prayers.

    I totally agree with what you said about having our babies too early to save versus saving them and they have a life of hospital stays and illnesses. You explained that well; in a way that I couldn't put into words. So, thank you!
