Surgery is over

We just heard about 30 minutes ago that they were closing her up and the surgery went well with no complications. Dr. Asano came and met with us, asked us questions about her speech capabilities and seizure types, and told us what to expect for the next several days. We are waiting for Dr. Sood to come and speak to us which should happen in the next 15 minutes or so. She will be in recovery around 1pm and then moved to PICU at 3pm which is when we'll see her. I can't wait! I am so relieved this step of surgery is over. It was about an hour and a half between updates and I was getting very anxious during that last half hour that we hadn't heard anything. Thanks for all the prayers, comments, good wishes...they mean the world!

Amen! Glad step one is over in this journey. Take a breath.

Puppy sterile? Are you kidding me? If puppy were anywhere near sterile he would no longer exist. Puppy is glued together with dirt and grime and things Michael dare think about. But he has Julia's love.
