Kepping those Crossed Eyes

Today I decided that Tatum is not having eye surgery, at least not on Tuesday. The hospital that the surgery was scheduled is really not the best facility for Tatum. Although it is a fine hospital they are missing one very important thing that Tatum needs in case of emergency...A bypass machine. Without this they can not do open heart surgery in the event of a emergence. If something were to happen to Tatum during this procedure I would never forgive myself.....SO we wait.

I am a bit annoyed with my Cardiologist, she was not the best advocate for my baby...I can not figure her out she is super nice but nice is not always the answer. I am on the fence about finding a new practice...can you say confusion!!! Dr. Desuza ( Tatum and Emma's pediatrician) suggested maybe John Hopkins if I was interested, we'll see. Right now I know only one thing, I am sleeping much better tonight knowing that this eye surgery is postponed. Besides those eyes are adorable!!!

I just want to get through Christmas without medical worries...Tomorrow morning is our annual breakfast with Santa...I can not wait, I wonder what the girls are gonna think of the big guy in the red suit. I am betting that it is pretty interesting :)

Good for you! I am a little surprised with her heart conditions that they felt it was okay to have the surgery without a bypass machine. It seems a little off.

I hope you come across some better docs for her.. are there any other people in the know out there who can guide you?

I think you made the right decision, Lisa. Better safe than sorry, I always say! Now you can enjoy the rest of the Christmas season without worrying about Tatum.

Like Tree said...Better safe than sorry! I am glad that you feel at peace with this decision. In the end, thats all you can ask for...a little peace.

I hope you are having tons of fun with Santa today. I wish I could be there with you.

LOVE YOU!
