They didn't let us stay with Mom last night (they've switched her rooms in ICU), so can't say from first hand experience how her night was. The nurse tells us that she had a pretty good night, though.
The plan continues to be for surgery today. The plastic surgeons talked with Dad this morning, and they plan to do the plastic surgery on both legs today, as well. So, this surgery could last around 8 hours - 1 to scrub, 3 for the ortho work, and 2 hours for each leg. So, we're in for a long day once she heads to surgery. I will do a post as soon as she goes so everyone is aware.
For those of you that happen to read this prior to surgery, please pray that she'll have the stamina to make it all the way through this surgery. The last time they attempted a surgery of this length, her lungs got rather unhappy, so they had to quit before they had done everything they wanted to do. If they are successful today, it will be quite a while before she will have to go back to surgery again. That will also help us get her vent out in the next day or so. Then, no vent, no more ICU!! She'll get to go to a room. If all goes very well over the next 48 hours, we could be in a room by the weekend!!!
Ok - more when she heads to surgery!
