Surgery time for Monday

Well, they just called from Duke with a surgery time for Monday. It is going to be at 1:45, and my mom and I need to be there at 11:45. I guess I can't deny it anymore.. it's coming. LOL.

Jason, Casey and I will be going to Durham Sunday and staying in a hotel that night. I thought it might be easier for us that way. Jason and Casey will be staying there Monday night too, as well as my dad, sister, and her children. My mom should be discharged on Tuesday if things go well. She has had nausea and vomiting in the past after anesthesia, so they are giving her a patch to wear this time to hopefully prevent some of that.

Jason or Casey will be updating my blog throughout the day. As soon as they hear updates, they said they would post them here. I should only be in the ICU one night and I won't be intubated when I wake up. This is SO different than my lung transplant. They have told me that the pain will be much less too, although I'll still have quite a bit. As long as they don't run out of Dilaudid, I'll be fine. :)

Rick sent me over to you. What a courageous woman you are! And yes, God has blessed you with so many loving family and friends.

I will pray for you this weekend and then, especially on Monday. :)

Hi Christy

I came over via Rick's. I love the header he did for you. I've asked him to do a drawing for my husband for Christmas. He's pretty awesome.

Good luck with your surgery. I'll go now and say a prayer for you.

Hugs!
Kat
