Postponing Surgery by 1 Week

Last week was filled with some ups and downs. In anticipation of Sophie’s upcoming surgery, we tried to plan fun day trips, interspersed with periodic hospital visits. We went to the beach, visited Land of Make Believe and took a trip to the “Make a Wish” castle in Central New Jersey.

On Thursday, we unfortunately found out that Sophie’s blood counts (specifically her platelets) will not be ready for surgery this coming Monday.  The surgeon and anesthesiologist require her platelets to be at a certain threshhold to make sure the surgery is as safe as possible and her body would be able to self-heal.  Although her numbers are slowly rising, they will not be high enough for tomorrow, and we are therefore forced to push off the surgery by one week, to Monday July 9th.

We will post additional updates if necessary, but for now, please keep Sophie in mind leading up to next Monday the 9th, and pray for for Chava Shalva Gavriella bat Shani Aliza the day of the surgery.
