Surgery is Done

She is waking up now after 1 1/2 hours of anesthesia. We still can't see her though. It will be about another half hour before we can see her in recovery.

Dr. Martin came out to talk to us, though. He said, "She did great. She came out of it kind of yelling, which is normal." I laughed a little at that, but then I felt bad because she is in pain.

He said that her skin was a little thin in the area from her former infection, but he left it there anyway. He wants to see if the blood flow will improve to the area. He thinks it may scab a little, and possibly scar a little. We'll have to see what happens. If it scars, we'll have to deal with that later.

She is currently on IV vicadin, and will move to pill form later on for about 4-5 days at the longest. She'll be on augmentin for 10 days post surgery to prevent infection.

That is the update for now.
