Mom had a good night last night. She's sedated following surgery, so she's been quite relaxed. She's "awake", but not what I'd call alert. They're starting to work on removing the ventilator, so hopefully it comes out today or tomorrow.
The plastic surgeons have spoken with us now. The plan is if she has surgery on the right tibia tomorrow (Wednesday) that they'll do the plastic surgery on Thursday. If she isn't able to have the right tibia repaired tomorrow, it will be next week before they complete the plastic surgery. The plastic surgeon did say she feels as though they can repair the skin on the foot, so we'll see how all of that progresses.
Thank you for your continued prayers - this is only the beginning of a very long journey for Mom (and all of us, really). The outpouring of concern has been overwhelming - I can't tell you how much it means to all of our family to see how much everyone else thinks of Mom. I mean, she's my Mom, I think she's the best thing since sliced bread, so it is pretty amazing to see that everyone else does, too. Thanks - alot.
I'll update more later as we have more info about surgery and if she is able to get rid of the ventilator.
