I said that I would let you all know what the plan is for now.  They did her echo this afternoon and it came back inconclusive, because of the obstruction her lungs give to seeing her heart.  So the plan is to give her a shot of radiation so her blood glows under a special light.  They will give her the shot and take a scan of her body to see how her blood is flowing to her lungs and the rest of her body. 

They are going to try and get us home for Christmas but there are no promises so I think that Paul and I are going to pack up her Christmas tree and bring it with us tomorrow so that we can have Christmas Eve. with her.

Ultimately they are going to have to do her second heart surgery sooner than they thought.  I think she just got a lot bigger a lot faster than they expected.  Our schedule for procedures will be to get the radiation scan, then the first week of January she will get a catheter exam and then they will decide when to do the heart surgery.  It is late and I need to clean the apartment and get some things packed for our hospital visit tomorrow.   We love you all and miss you all very much.  We also can’t thank you enough for all of your prayers and thoughtfulness and everything that you all have done for us.   God’s Blessings to each and every one of you and a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!
Love,
Jessica, Paul and Namine Eiche:)

    A young couple with more questions than answers has a baby in circumstances neither of them would have chosen, and are forced to spend Christmas Eve in a place not their own–and God blesses them and everyone around them in the process.

    We don’t know the “Why,” but we do know the “Who.” May we ever turn to Him in our need and thank Him for the love He has shown us.

    You continue to be in our prayers.

    With all my love,
