Surgery rescheduled several times.

My daughter had complete AVSD repaired@ 5 mths old. She is 9 and was scheduled to repair/replace her mitral valve on Jan 12th. Our surgery has been postponed 4 times this past week because of no ICU beds @ Stanford! So we are on standyby for the weekend, should be having it within the next week. Although she is ill, she is not critically ill, and they get tons of emergencies there! Has anyone ever expierienced this? My daughter is so stressed, it has financially impacted us, and now I have to extend my FMLA leave. We live quite awhile away and fortunately got in the Ronald Mcdonald house.

Well I do hope that you little on has had her surgery.. I do understand how frustrating it can be when things get rescheduled... and being a ways from home does not help a situation at all.
