Tommorow is the big day.

We went to Primary's today for all of Mason's preop blood tests and x-rays. All went well so we returned home so Mason could sleep in his own bed for one more night before surgery. We have to have him back at the hospital by 6am tomorrow morning. His surgery is scheduled for 7:30am and will take 4-5 hours. They will be doing the Glenn, which is stage 2 of the Hypoplastic Left Heart palliation procedure. They say he will have a major headache for several days after, because he will have an increased blood flow to the upper half of his body, which he is not used to. Although, finally he will have pink cheeks! This will be a very long day, but we know little Mason is being watched over and will feel our Heavenly Father's love and comfort! Please continue to pray that all goes well. We have true faith in the power of prayer.

Also there has been a trust fund set up on behalf of Mason Andrew Strickland at Wellsfargo bank. To donate you can call or visit any Wellsfargo branch. Mason may reach his lifetime insurance out of pocket before he is 3 years old! We appreciate any donations. This fund will help pay for future medical costs. Thank you.

Summer I might possibly be at Primary Children's hospital tomorrow evening. I don't know if you can or want visitors. I would love to come see you if this is possible. Good luck tomorrow and he and you will definately be in our prayers.

We are all praying for you, baby Mason and the doctors. Please keep us posted on what is happening. You know me, I like to worry. I can't believe how grown up he looks. He looks so much like his daddy. Please let me know if you need anything!!!
