Margo's Surgery

Hi Everyone,

This is Rene (Margo's life partner) writing for Margo, she asked me to update you on her surgery.

She came through it WONDERFULLY.  The procedure started around 9:30 am and the doctor spoke with me at 12:30 pm.  Everything went exactly as planned.

About the only problem that they had was a very long delay in getting her up to her room.  So they kept her in recovery until about 5:30 pm..  I saw her at 5:45 and she was awake, alert, (as alert as you can be after surgery) and in good spririts.

She is in a step down unit, which means that she is in a room that is not as serious as ICU but they want to watch her more closly than if she was in a regular room. If all goes well she will be placed in a regular room some time tomorrow, when they are sure that her O2 levels, sugar level and all else is going well.  She may be home as early as Thursday. But that is if everything is at its best.

Margo asked me to thank all of you for your positive energy, prayers, and thoughts that you have sent her way.  Needless to say we both appreaciate them very much.

Be assured that as soon as she gets home she will fill you in on all the details. Until then I will do my best to keep you all informed.

Rene

I came here through Judi's journal.  I have scrolled down and read your past half dozen entries or so to find out what the surgery was for.  Now that I know, I wish you all the best with your recovery.  You are so brave to have undertaken this.  I have rooted for Connie from the first I heard of her plans.  I now root for you, too, Margo.  I will add you to my prayers for a speedy recovery.

YAY! Tell Margo she's in my prayers and thoughts. I'm glad she made it through with seeming ease and hope just as much for a quick and ease-filled recovery.
