We expect her to be in the hospital for less than two weeks. Immediately following the surgery (while she's still sedated), they'll do a full echo cardiogram on her heart. We hope to hear good news about her heart.
They will have to intubate her for the surgery. It breaks my heart to put her through this again. I know that getting rid of the reflux and being able to eat normally will be worth it. But, there's no way to convey this to her. During her recovery, I plan to be at the hospital with her as often as I can get away.
This is a good step forward for Seraph. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. *hugs*
