Update from OR as of 1700 hours (5:00pm), everything is proceeding well, Lisa's vitals, blood chemistry, and all other physiological variables being tracked, continue to be as strong as initial readings. Resection of the tumor continues, and will continue until they get as much as they can get, or some anomalous readings of her physiology causes them to retreat. This would be unlikely given her resilience thus far. The nurse said it would be, at an absolute minimum another 4-5 hours. She has been under full sedation now, 1800 hours, for 9 hours.
Take some cleansing breaths folks and try to relax, the way things are going right now, the longer they are in there the better it is. I really don't anticipate her being out till after 2200 hours.
By the way, if you don't like the 24 hour clock time......too bad, ;) it makes the arithmetic easier for me, and perhaps it gives you a wee bit of distraction.
Really folks, remember, right now longer is better.
Sorry for the delay in an update, I'm supposed to be trying to get some sleep during this time. I'm sure as hell not having her laying awake in recovery without me there.
ETA Sorry folks, I just reread this trying for an objective POV and realized, if you were not me, or didn't know be pretty damn well, this may have come off pretty snippy. The crack about the clock was actually supposed to be funny, and the remark about the sleep was meant to be ironic, as in, "Yea right, sleep. Yea I'll get right on that." BTW have any elephant tranquilizer??
