We were scared and nervous when Delaney's Cardiologist told us she needed to have open heart surgery, but we knew how strong willed she was. She had already beaten some incredible odds and shown how wrong many people were about her. We reluctantly agreed to the surgery, but we wanted everyone at the hospital to know how loved she was.
And off to surgery she flew, although Delaney wasn't quite sure why her Moms were letting her go with the nice nurse and not coming with her. We were trying not to cry, but we didn't do such a great job hiding our tears. Delaney waved bye to us, smiling all the while to reassure us she would be okay.
