To say that yesterday was a disappointment is an understatement. We had weighed the risks versus the rewards of the surgery so carefully ....;( Sweet Avalanna was subjected to all the risks, with no benefit.

After 5 plus hours of anesthesia & a further 4 hours of having to lie, absolutely still ( which Avalanna hates), when they actually sat her up, she had trouble breathing & spiked a fever. A chest X-ray followed that showed fluids in Avalannas lungs. We had the best team of doctors with us yesterday and although it was very late, we got to take Avalanna home last night. She needed to get out of there,,,,,inpatient stays are not good for Avalanna...or any of us.

Please keep Avalanna in your prayers over Easter ... As tired as we all are, we need to keep Hope & Faith that Avalanna will have her Miracle.

Love Aileen
