Charlotte goes to the hospital tomorrow for her second cardiac catheter procedure. It’s been 15 months since the last one. Back then, she was tiny, spindly and being fed through a tube in her nose. Today, she’s a chatty little monkey, love to give hugs, and giggles a lot.
It’s going to a LOT harder to watch her be wheeled down the hall for anesthesia than it has ever been before.
Philippe believes that my fear about this procedure prompted my dreaming last night that I lost Charlotte. He’s probably right. In the dream, I was out somewhere with Charlotte in her stroller. Next thing I knew, the stroller and baby were gone. I looked frantically for her. Literally saved by the bell, I woke up to the alarm clock with all members of my family safely tucked into their beds.
Charlotte will be seen tomorrow by Dr. Stephen Pophal, her interventionist cardiologist. She goes to the cath lab at 10:30 a.m. CST and we expect the procedure could take as long as 4 hours. Please keep her in your prayers.
