E came down with a terrible cold, too. :(  He stayed home yesterday where I pumped him full of Mucinex and fruit/veggie juice.  Today, he is much better and is at school.  M is still doing okay.  She's a bit congested, but her pediatrician said yesterday her lungs were clear.  She has had no fevers so at this point, surgery is still on for today.  She is scheduled for 2:00 p.m.  Hopefully all will go well and this will be the last throat procedure.  We're also praying for her central line to be removed.  I'm anxious to see what the ENT has to say about her throat.  She's been super gaggy the last few days and I'm hoping there's an easy, physical reason for it.  If he finds nothing, I'm afraid it's neurologic.  I'm a bit more nervous about this procedure since she had such a difficult time with anesthesia last time.  I'm hoping we have one of the anesthesiologists who is very familiar with her. 

M's disposition has also improved some.  So far, she is smiley and squealy today despite not being able to eat anything.  I'm sure that will change as the morning turns to afternoon and she can't figure out why her poor tummy is sooooo empty and worse, why mama won't do anything about it. :(

I'll try to update later.

Praying for a successful surgery! And for energy for all of you - this must all be so stressful!
