Surgery is underway!

She went in a little after 8:00. She was smiling and ready to go in with the nurse. They do have to intubate (put a breathing tube in) since they are working so close to her face. They would hate to suffocate her while they were working! I agreed. She did great coming off the ventilator when they put the mediport in, so we don't anticipate any problems. Should be a quick in and out deal. Then one of us gets to go into "Phase One" recovery with her (for about 45 minutes). Who do you think that will be! Once we get to "Phase Two," (for about 1 hour) we both get to be there and she can finally eat. She was starting to get a little cranky every time she saw her hospital bag - knowing that's where the goods are!

Once we are in recovery - "Phase Two" I'll let everyone know. I'd have Zac update during "Phase One," but he would have no clue where to even begin. Then we should be out the door!
