One step Forward & Two steps Back.. Heart Surgery Tomorrow

Well the Dr finally decided that Soli needs the heart surgery to close her PDA. The Left side of her heart is enlarged and her heart is working harder than it should be. Hopefully after this surgery things will turn around. He wants the Cardio Dr to do the surgery tomorrow. If that is the case I will be at the hospital all day. I am Scared but relieved at the same time. I just want her to get better. It is strange but I am almost at peace with the surgery. I know this Is what she needs to get better.
But the good news is She weighed 1 lb 14 ozs tonight!!! She would be 27w 5d gestation today. It is so hard to believe the rollar coaster we have been on for the 2w and 3d Soli has been here. She is So strong and I am so proud of her!
Here is her weekly Chick-a-la pic..
