Tuesday afternoon

This morning my parents and Victoria went to the hospital for the appointment Victoria had with one of the paediatric surgeons from the Brompton hospital. It seems all a bit complicated, but surgery will be in about 2 and a half months time, because her condition needs to deteriorate somewhat before the surgery, or else her heart will be under too much strain. She's not supposed to start deteriorating until she is 3 weeks old, although since she was last weighed she has not put on any weight, which is apparently an indication that she's already burning off a lot of energy in breathing and circulation. But at the moment everything is stable, although prayer is still very much necessary - thankyou to those who are praying for my sister and my parents.
As far as I and Leicester go, it looks like I will be going back to Leicester this weekend, although I am still trying to see if I can get a transfer in some shape or form on to the course in Guildford in the near future.

    Henrietta has just posted about the Blogs on deut 6 and so I've been reading it all with interest and amazement.
    We have been praying for you all, but didn't want to 'pester' you for news, so we're very glad you've come up with this great way of keeping everybody up to date. Thank you.
    May the Lord continue to give you strength to keep going, and peace in the unfolding of His plans regarding the timing of Victoria's op.
    Our love in Him, Colette and David.
