Scarlett will be admitted to the hospital tomorrow, Thursday, for monitoring, fluids and supplemental nutrition until surgery. They want to bulk her up as best they can and keep a close eye on her vitals as they prepare for surgery.
She is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday, January 5, 2011. This could be the first of a few very long, very intense surgeries, depending on how her body handles anesthesia and surgery. She has not had any problems the last two times she was under general anesthesia (for MRI and biopsy last week), so we are optimistic that surgery will be well tolerated this time as well, though it is much more extensive.
We can only hope and pray that we are making the right choice for our precious girl. The doctors are clear that this is her only chance, so we are going for it.
