Blog Update

The marathon has begun.  Susan rolled into the OR at 0845.  The surgery started at 0935.  Dr. C. briefed me about the details; they are numerous.  Let's just say this surgery will last 10 - 12 hours.

Susan was alert, well rested and as ready for the battle as she could be. Her doctor & her partner will be doing the whole procedure.  First of all, they will see with their eyes what is going on inside.  Then, they will start on their course.  We are now in the waiting mode.  Susan will awaken as if she had only dozed of for a minute.  Because of the length of the surgery she will be aided in breathing overnight.  In the ICU she will get excellent care.

That's about all we know right now.  I promise I will post soon after I learn something from the OR as the procedures happen.  The doctors will send out messages, probably via a PA or Nurse.  Until then, thank you for caring.
