Surgery update

Just thought I would update a little on what is going on with Abbey. We are scheduled to go into Primary Childrens Hospital tomorrow where they while remove our little nemisis the dreaded "TOKEN". We have not heard what time but we should know by 4:00 today. Just asking you all to keep us in your thoughts and prayers for all to go well! They are going to have to make 2 small incisions in her stomach to be able to remove the token. It is a bigger deal than we had hoped for so we are asking for Abbey to feel brave and safe. She seems to be doing okay but she was listening very intently when the surgeon explained the procedure and is now trying to process that as well as a three year old mind can. Mostly it is the "they are cutting me open" part that she is having the hardest time with. We walked into the post office yesterday and I think it was just a new and different place and she looked up at me and said "are they cutting me open now?" So she is trying to prepare herself the best she can. It is hard on the momma too just knowing there is no good way to prepare her for this. Thank you all for loving and supporting us and we just ask for your support as we go through this next chapter. Hopefully if all goes well we will get to bring her home Thursday..... here's keeping our fingers crossed for that!
