News

Ok everyone....breathe.

It is 8:55pm PST.  Scarlett is out of surgery. She is doing well and is stable.  We saw her as they wheeled her to PICU and she is moving all 4 limbs and coming out of sedation well.  Hooray!!!!!

However, we're not done.  The surgeon removed 70-80% of the tumor.  He felt this was somewhat easily and successfully removed and he could have continued, but he was concerned about her blood loss.  She lost twice her full volume of blood (her entire blood volume is equivalent to a can of soda).  She was successfully transfused and is stable, but he wanted to be conservative, so she will go back into surgery next week to remove the remaining tumor.

We will see her again shortly.  I am so proud of my feisty little girl!!!!  Thank you to everyone for keeping us raised up; we're not out of the woods, but we are feeling confidant that we made the right decision for now.

Moving all four limbs - thats awesome. huge congrats to the surgeon who was able to recognize the limitations of a 2 month old. Sorry you have to go through this again so soon. I hope you get to hold your baby very soon. Even if you cant hold her in your arms, you can put the side of the crib down and snuggle up to her. Hoping for a comfortable night. Try to get some sleep if you can.

I came across your story through BBC - I'm a new mom too, and little Scarlett Grace really touched me. Know that a family in Scottsdale, AZ is praying for you and keeping your family in their thoughts!

Hi, I've been following your blog! I think about baby Scarlett every day. My baby has had to be operated on as well and I know how scary and hard it is, especially when you give your baby to the anesthesiologist and walk away. It kills me every time.

Anyway, I knew she would make it through! I am so happy. Babies are a lot tougher than we think. I am really glad she is doing well.

Jennifer said...

I am so happy and overjoyed that this surgery went so well and that Scarlett had a doctor that knew when it was time to stop!! I pray that the next surgery removes the rest of the tumor and that you have a sweet, HEALTHY baby soon after! Praise GOD!!

Krista (BBC Aug 10) said...

Yay baby Scarlett! You keep fighting baby girl! I'm so glad to hear the surgery went well. I'm praying for her next surgery and hope they are able to get the rest of the tumor. Thanks for keeping us updated!

I have been thinking of Scarlett and you both, through the night, at every feeding. Thank God for the doctors success and your baby's strength!

Praise the Lord for all of his blessings on this tiny baby girl. I have been keeping up with your blog and know that I pray for Scarlett everyday. I am a new mother to a 6 month old baby girl, Emerson Grace, and I can not imagine what you are going through. But know that I do believe in miracles and I believe with my whole heart your daughter will be cured.

Mark 11:23-25

For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea', and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

What a strong little girl you have. And what courageous parents she has. Still praying and hope you can get a little rest.

Jill Angel said...

Keep it up! You are doing GREAT! It is never easy to see your child sick and not be able to do anything about it. You are right about it being the second worst club in the world. The good thing about being a member of either of those clubs is that you can use your knowledge to help others. Take it from a fellow club member.
