This is a blog for my daughter Scarlett. She was born with a complex congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. She is my little hero.

In Surgery Hour 1

This pic was taken minutes before we handed Scarlett to the surgery nurse after 2 hours of waiting in the pediatric pre-op area. It was pretty rough, but luckily my sister came to be with me (and Todd) when I started to fall to pieces as we walked away from the cardiac surgical wing.

It's been about an hour since her surgery started. We were told about a half hour ago that they had put her under and were getting her IV lines in.  I will post more when I know more. Thank you for praying for my darling little Scarlett during her 7-10 hour operation. Your prayers are appreciated! :)


  1. Hi Melodie,

    I've been thinking of you and Scarlett since last night. I woke up at 5am and thought of you again. Please know that your family, Scarlett and Dr. Cleveland are in my thoughts and prayers. I will pray very hard for Scarlett to come out of surgery like you said better than when she went in. I pray for comfort for you during this long and emotional day. BIG HUG TO YOU.

  2. Thinking of you all today... Please keep us updated!
