Got an early start this morning. Ellie was taken back and surgery is guessed to start at 9:30am and last at least 5-6 hours. It was a rough drive down this morning, as we got closer I got more nervous. I practiced a lot of deep breathing. I did my best to hold my emotions back not to worry Ellie. Ellie did a fantastic job holding back her stress and nerves. It was a lot different then last time. They spoke to us about the proceedure. Ellie also had to sign consent forms for some stuff. I am so proud of her and how strong she was/is through all of this. She was amazingly strong as the she really understands more now that she is older and the Doctors spoke directly to her. I brought with the amazing blanket made out of my Grandma’s shirts, Mrs. Zafar we truly love these and I feel like a part of my grandma is with Ellie. Also the Pillow made out of my Grandpa Georges shirt from my Aunt Becki. If anyone is watching over Ellie, its my Grandma and Two Grandpas. They loved her so much and at both of there funerals I asked them to watch over her. Thank you everyone for all the love, support, & Prayers. Its going to be a long day.
P.S. Does anyone know what the LIVE THE DREAM on the building is for?
