Day Before Surgery

The last two days have been some of the longest days of my life! We finally got the phone call today at around 3:30 about Mya's surgery tomorrow. She will have the G-Tube placed at 9:00 tomorrow morning. Matt and I have to have her there at 7:30 to get her ready.

I'm sure tonight is going to be a little rough. We have to feed her pretty much around the clock until 6:00 in the morning. She can have formula until 3:00 A.M. and then pedialyte until 6:00 A.M. She will not be able to eat for several hours after the surgery so her hydration and nutrition tonight is important.

I feel like we have been waiting for this day for so long and now I just want to get it over with. I feel guilty looking at her knowing what I am going to put her through (although we are looking out for her best interest). I guess sometimes I just want to wake up and have this all be a bad dream!

I know how hard this has been on Matt and I but she is the one that is going through all the trauma. She had 4 days last week where see ate 5-10 bites of food at each meal. On Monday she gagged really bad and ended up throwing up while eating. Ever since I feel as though we are back to square one with her eating. We have started to go to a feeding therapitst in Fishers. So, I have hope that she will improve! I swear those 4 days of good eating were the best 4 days I have had in a long long time! I actually went on a shopping spree with my mom I was so excited! I just think....I wish all these problems were happening to me and not my little girl!

We would like to thank everyone for all their help! My mom has been a saint! She stayed at our house two nights in a row so we could get some sleep before her surgery! Please say an extra prayer for Mya tonight!! But I think God really is looking out for our little angel!!
