6 year old Reese, if you're so moved

Post by Hovannes » Mon Jun 18, 2018 9:19 am

She is going in for corrective surgery tomorrow, June 19 at UCSF Children's Hospital to fix a Vascular Ring
"A congenital anomaly in which the aorta arch and it's branches are completely encircling and compressing the esophagus and trachea.

A pretty scary operation for a little girl who just completed from kindergarten. They tell me recovery takes 12 weeks in the hospital.

3 months hospital recovery. I am floored by that so I can't begin to imagine how you folks feel. Most fervent and sincere Prayers Up for little Reese and Company.

Last night her parents took her to see the Giants play against the Marlins.
She went back to hotel at 9:00 because of the pre op fast, so she didn't see 'em lose.
She was taken into surgery this morning

Reese is out of surgery and in the ICU.
While she was in surgery, a space opened up at the Ronald McDonald House located inside the Children's Hospital, one floor from where Reese will be.
This is good news since her little sister Rowan, 8 months old, is with them so her parents will be able to take turns sitting with Reese.
