Rescheduled...AGAIN


I am very sad to report that Conner's heart surgery has been set back again. The hospital called and said that there are emergency cases that need to before Conner, and so they rescheduled him to JULY 6TH. Needless to say I cried for the next hour. I'm sure the 5 weeks will go by faster than I expect, but right now it seems like an eternity away. Of course I have to look at the bright side of the situation: 1) More time we get to spend with Conner before he goes in for surgery 2) We will get to see him develop more with things like smiling and laughing and rolling over 3) There is comfort in knowing that there is a reason for this happening and that Heavenly Father is in charge and knows what is best.

I am so sorry! I can only imagine how frustrating it is to not be able to just get this over with for the poor little guy, and yourselves. You deserve to cry it out.
I know you guys are staying strong. Seriously, if you need any help, let us know!

So sorry to hear that. Hang in there!

He is so cute. I'm sorry it's not going the way you planned. I'll have my fingers crossed for you! :(

Annie,
My name is Ashley and I am a member of IHH (how I got to your blog). Just wanted to say a quick "Hi" and let you know I am checking your blog and hoping and praying for the best for little Conner and your family. This "heart mom" road is pretty tough sometimes, but also extremely rewarding. My son Matthew also has Tetralogy of Fallot and he used to have an NJ tube for awhile (I got a chuckle out of your post about accidentally pulling the tube out right after having it replaced...my husband did that exact same thing! How stressful! :) Anyway, you are welcome to check out our blog if you are interested. Good luck with everything!

I am sorry that it got re-scheduled. It's so hard emotionally to build yourself up the day and then to be told you have to wait. I am crying with you.
I like that you are looking at it in a way to see more development that will happen with Conner and getting to enjoy those moments.

That is too bad ... but look at you and your positivity!! Keep that up :)

Welcome to the Heart Mom roller coaster! :) Just focus on the positives, I'm sorry that you have to wait another 6 weeks, but it will go by quickly. Another positive is that will give Conner more time to grow and be stronger. Heart surgery is scary, and the bigger and stronger your baby is, the easier the surgery and recovery. (Or so I've been told! Elaina was 4lbs 6oz when she had her 1st surgery!).
Big hugs, he's so adorable!

Annie-

I am sorry that your surgery got postponed. The waiting is sometimes the hardest part! I will be watching for updates on your sweet little guy and praying that all goes well when his surgery does finally happen. In the meantime, hold and hug and snuggle him every chance you get because it is hard postop when you can't do these things!

Annie, oh my goodness I feel horrible I had no idea any of this was going on. I am so sorry. My prayers go out to your adorable little family. Conner is so sweet. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. You and Paul are both amazingly strong people, I know you guys can get through anything. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. I love you and I miss seeing you. I hope his surgery doesn't get rescheduled again. Talk to you soon.
