I just wanted to quick post to let everybody know what time surgery is tomorrow for Ellie. We are planning on arriving at Spectrum at 11:00 am, and then surgery is scheduled for 1:00 pm. I'm sure Ellie will be soooo hungry when she wakes up! She can't eat anything tomorrow morning, and can only drink clear liquids until 9:00 am. Luckily, she's not a big eater in the morning anyways. :)
Joe took Ellie to see Dr. Daniels yesterday. We were concerned because she has a very runny nose...usually along with that, she gets fluid in her ears. Thankfully, he said there is no fluid in her ears yet. Hopefully tomorrow will be the same. Dr. Daniels also said that if one ear is clear and the other one isn't, he will still implant the one good ear.
We are both feeling kind of nervous for tomorrow, but at the same time very excited to begin this new path. We will be very relieved to have Ellie back in our arms after surgery tomorrow!
Here is a picture of my baby....please say a prayer for her tomorrow afternoon!
