Maggie has been remarkably healthy since we met her over 2 months ago. Despite her crazy mouth issues, she's never had even a runny nose.
Until now. Surgery is 8 days away and she has bronchiolitis. It's a viral infection with lots and lots of congestion in her head and chest. It's probably the same virus that gave the rest of us colds (and Sam a double ear infection), but since she's little, it's went into her chest and has made itself comfortable there.
She sounds terrible. It typically takes 2 weeks for it to run its course, and we don't have that much time before surgery. The doctor was doubtful that she would be better in time for surgery, as she has to have a clear airway and no cough/congestion.
Please pray for our girl! Although this surgery is not life-saving, it will be life-changing and we are so anxious to get her on that path. We scheduled this surgery way back in October, before we even left for China. February 6th has been a date ingrained in our minds before we even held her in our arms.
Perhaps there is a reason she shouldn't have the surgery next week. If that's the case, then we will be okay with that, although we are still holding out hope!
Please pray for quick healing. Please pray for her lungs and head to clear of any and all congestion by next week. Pray for her overall health and well-being.
Also, if it's not meant to be for next week, then please pray for the surgery to be re-scheduled at a time that is best for her, whenever that may be. Pray for us to have peace over the situation regardless of when the surgery ends up being.
Thank you so much!
