Olivia - update #4

Surgery almost done

Posted 41 minutes ago
Olivia's surgeon just came out and said that he was done with his portion of surgery and that they are just finishing up in the OR!!! He said surgery went perfect and that her oxygen saturation level is at 100%!!!!! I cannot express how wonderful that news is since she has had a level of 70-80's since birth. Now all of her organs and the rest of her body is getting the right amount of oxygenated blood to funtion at their fullest. I have such relief that I feel like I could cry for a solid hour, tears of joy and relief that the surgery part is almost over. We made it through 4 surgeries and now finally that part is over.
We are going by the elevators to see her before she goes up to the room shortly and then it will take 1 or 1 1/2 hours for them to get her situated before we can see her.
Thank you again for all of your kind thoughts and prayers today. I'll update again later.
Love you,
We did get a room at the McDonald House. Ironically, it's one we've stayed in twice before :)
