Mom was just hanging in the family waiting room with us in her gown and the IV wheeler when the nurse came to retrieve her for pre-op. They expect pre-op to take around 2 hours, if not longer. The hole where her catheter went in through her liver has reopened and started leaking again last night, so we might have an issue there. Hopefully not, though.
Dad, Thayne, Jennie, Susie and I are all here and sporting our yellow. The nurses know who mom's family is by spying our yellow insanity!
Surgery will take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours. Then, she'll be in recovery for another 2 to 3 hours.
More updates to come!
