Surgery Completed

Mom came out of surgery about 5 pm.  The doctor was very pleased with the outcome.  She endured the nine hours of anesthesia very well.

Right now, she is getting settled in ICU.  They will be monitoring her closely and expect to have her up sometime within the next 12 hours.  The doctor was optimistic her time in ICU would be short.

One of us will be with her 24/7 for the next few days.  The staff here has been absolutely wonderful to all of us.  They kept us updated frequently throughout the day.

Will post more later .....

Thank you for your prayers!!!

And again:
