First Surgery

Lyla hours prior to her surgery.
Lyla's first surgery was a heart catheterization in which the doctor went in through her groin and inserted a balloon into each of her pulmonary arteries and stretched them open.

Peacefully sleeping just before her surgery.
The doctors weren't sure how successful the catheterization would be so they prepared her father and I for the worst. When the doctor came out to talk to us they told us her surgery was a success and she did not require the oxygen any more. We were relieved to say the least.

This was the evening after her surgery. She was smiling and happy.
