Good evening everyone. It is nearly 8PM and they are still at work in the OR. Sue's Dad, sister, and I were having dinner at about 6:30PM when I got the last call. All is going well and they had just started with the microvascular surgery, or reconnecting the harvested veins and starting blood flow. This is a tedious portion of the surgery, as you may probably imagine. This is all so amazing to me.
The report from the suite, at that time, was that they still had a good chunk of time to go. I believe that anything before 10PM would be a great surprise for the team. I can only imagine how long a day it has been for them. I'm pretty much wiped out from sitting in the lounge.
I'll try and update again later tonight when everything is done and we've had a chance to sit down and talk with the surgeons. I appreciate everyone's prayers and thoughts for Sue today. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful support system...family, friends, co-workers. You are all awesome!
