I hope my blog posts aren't getting too boring for everyone. I hear that people want more updates so I'll try to deliver. David and Sam went to Portland today for David's pre-op appointment. I stayed home to take Charlie and Katie to their open houses for school since I will miss their first day of school tomorrow. David met with the surgeons and they explained the surgery that will happen tomorrow. He is to check in at 10:30 and the surgery is scheduled for 12:00 or 1:00pm. We are extremely dissappointed that they will have to crack his entire chest to access his heart. We were told previously that this would not be neccessary. This means about a year of pain for David. He is not to work for at least 2 weeks and can't lift anything for 3 months. His pace maker will be placed just under his heart in the center or his torso instead of in his shoulder like most people. The leads will be all around the outside of his heart.
We would appreciate all the prayers we can get tomorrow. This is going to be a hard day for our whole family.
