Day 3 - October 2, 2008 - Part 2

Just heard from the Orthopaedic docs.

Surgery tomorrow morning at 8 am. They are planning extensive surgery on her left leg. They are going to repair her femur. Also, they are going to do some work on the left tibula. The expectation is that surgery will last 6 to 7 hours (so don't expect a report until late afternoon). There are a number of risks with the surgery. She is still at high risk of infection, and there are all the usual risks that occur with surgery.

They then expect no additional surgery for at least another 48 hours.

There's lots to pray for - This is a big surgery and will start to give us indication of how she is going to heal. These are still both limb threatening - lots of risks. Lots. Keep her in prayers - especially while she's in surgery. Then the healing process can begin...

More when I know!!

I'm watching the clock, waiting to hear positive news after this surgery. We continue to pray for no infection and no complications.
