Wendy's surgery went great!
Hi everyone, This is Wendy's sister Terry filling in today.
Wendy's surgery got started a little late yesterday and she was finished after about 3 hours and all went well. They were able to use laprascopic surgery for the entire procedure, which is good news - recovery will be easier because of that! The risks with this surgery involved fluctuating bp and heart rate as the tumor was removed, and thankfully that was all held under control. She is safe! After surgery her vitals have been "rock solid" steady, as Rob described to me. Of course she is in some pain and very groggy and hoarse - all to be expected. What a relief. We are all so grateful to everyone for their prayers, love, support, meals, etc!
She was expected to stay in ICU for the night, but since she was doing so well, there was some discussion of putting her in a regular room sooner. I will update again later when there is more news!
