Abby's balloon procedure is on for tomorrow at 10am. They will open both the left side and the right side. Dr. Keiser will be performing the procedure (he is awesome) and it should last a few hours. Not sure if she will return temporarily to the PICU afterwards, hopefully she will - even if she does not need it we prefer the care in the PICU. She will have to go back on the vent - but only temporarily.
Abby and I had a nice visit from our friends Clarencia, Iris, Dana and Shelly last night as well as our friend Dawn and her little boy Tim. It is really nice to be with friends and have them share in Abby's success and progress.
