So. Here we are. There's really not much news to post, but figured I owed y'all at least an update. Lacie is currently in surgery. We (Lacie, me and her mom Sandy) arrived at the hospital bright and early at 5:30 a.m. Surgery was scheduled to start at 7:30. Everything pretty much went to spec with the nurses shuffling Sandy and I out of the pre-op area at around 7:15 so they could get Lacie into motion.
We checked into the surgical waiting area and here we wait. The waiting room is really nice. Last year it was under construction so we were in an older space, but this year the new space is open and everything is comfy and new. Carpet. LCD TVs. Wireless. PC available. Free coffee. We were issued our pager at around 8 a.m. (they page you shortly before the doctor comes out to give you the update after surgery) and we went downstairs for some breakfast and a stretch of the legs.
Not much else to report other than we expect her to be out of surgery sometime around 2 p.m., so check back sometime shortly thereafter for an update. Keep those prayers a comin'! Compared to last time we were here, both Lacie and I were remarkably at ease with the situation when she went into surgery. Prayers are working. And we know she is in good hands.
