Today, we finally got the call we have been waiting and praying for, a set date for Sammie's surgery.
February 1st , Sammie will get a temporary pacemaker. Two insulated wires will go down her nose and attach to her stomach. The pacemaker will hang around her neck. She will stay like this for 3 days ,making sure the pacemaker is doing it's job. After those 3 days, if things are working well, she will get the permanent pacemaker.
In the permanent surgery each lead is placed in the muscle wall of the stomach. The lead bodies are then routed under the skin to the pacemaker. The pacemaker will be placed in a pocket just beneath the skin in the lower abdominal area. She will get to go home 3 or 4 days later.
I am so thankful but extremely anxious , I just hope and pray this will help Sammie.
ONLY 47 MORE DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!
