A Long Overdue Update

So much has happened in the past few weeks. Eden was officially placed on the wait list for a liver transplant. She had an echo that showed her right coronary artery connects in an unusual location which would be no big deal except that it is close to her pulmonary artery. So now cardiology wants to follow her on a yearly basis to make sure it doesn't get kinked off by the pulmonary artery.
Now for the good news. My CT scan showed that the anatomy of my liver is suitable for living donation. So although I still have a few more tests and appointments I should be able to donate a piece of my liver to Eden. Dr Book said that we will likely do the transplant in October. That is only a month away! Very fast, but I would rather do it now while she is still stable and her recovery will likely be better. So that's the condensed version of what has been going on with Eden.

As for Seth and Ethan they started back to preschool on Monday. They weren't nearly as excited as last year, but still they were looking forward to it and walked right on into their classroom with out looking back.
