"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Psalm 139:13-16

That's right, no surgery today. Julianne continued to have fevers last night and this morning during which her heart rate go up and her saturations go down. Dr. Breitbart said that at this point they're no longer thinking its the coils causing the fever. That would've been a 24 hour thing. She's also had two echocardiograms showing diminished function in her heart. She's had several blood tests, one of which was testing for an infection in the heart. The blood test showed that what they were looking for (I can't remember what its called...triptopin, maybe) was slightly elevated, but nowhere near it would be if she had an infection in her heart. So, were VERY thankful for that.
That kind of leaves everyone just waiting though. There's no apparent reason for what she's doing other than she just has some kind of bug and we just have to wait for her to get better. Dr. Breitbart said that regardless of her heart function if any baby had a fever on the day of their surgery they wouldn't do it unless it was emergency surgery. So, we'll just wait. We definitely want whatever is safest for Julianne.
Thank you for checking in and thank you for all of the prayers.
