Abby just went in for surgery.. they are doing a cath test to check the pressures of her heart so we can know exactly what the next step is. she then is getting surgery to get a defibrillator (pace maker) so that if her heart stops again it will shock it to make it start again. her memory is not good at all. she keeps asking what day it is, and how long she has been here, but most of all she keeps asking for a drink of water. she has probably asked my mom a billion times. she can't have any water, because of the surgery. she doesn't know what happened, or where she is. she remembers who most people are, but forgets she has seen them before. because she can't have any water, and we continually say no, so she tried a different liquid like milk and gatorade. we are just hoping she doesn't ask for beer or alcohol. when we took her down to surgery there were pictures on the wall and she said "are the pictures supposed to be moving??" ha she was so out of it. the doctors say her condition is congenital so me, my brother, my mom, and our extended family are all getting tested with an echocardiogram. scary stuff. this is just for an update, and we will know more when she gets out of surgery. thanks for all your prayers and love.
