Things are going well. The doc finally wrapped up the procedure around 2100 last night. That makes for one long damn day. SIL was rolled into the OR at 0645 to start hooking her up to all sorts of tubes and equipment. The actual surgery started at 0800 and they rolled her out to ICU around 2100. By my math, that is 13 hours. Imagine being on the table for that long. Damn. It didn't take me that long to fly to London in September. I am trying to picture how the OR team handled it. Did they get a smoke break? What about eating? And let's not even stop to consider potty breaks.
Still, it came out well. Wife got to see SIL after the procedure before they rolled her to the ICU. She was doing well, just groggy. She should be moved to her own room later today. She'll be in the hospital for the next two weeks to recover and then home for several weeks to get her strength back. Will be a while before she is able to do any twerking.
