Lisa is headed for the recovery room, in these cases ICU, just talked with the surgeon, and his synopsis was that the surgery went very well.  They got a lot more of the tumor than they had expected to, it is off of both optic nerves, and her carotid artery. All of her vital signs remained strong throughout the procedure. He made sure to emphasize surgery is one thing, and recovery entirely another. There is no way to anticipate how long it will take for her to feel well again, or even if some of her symptoms may be a bit worse. That could take up to 6 months to determine. but there were no catastrophic events.
She will be considered to be in critical condition for the next 24 hours probably, so everything will continue to be very closely monitored, but go to bed everybody, SHE MADE IT!!!


Oh and btw, this is the last post till tomorrow.
