I heard from my parents at the hospital that the surgery went very well! My brother was working today and was able to go in for some time while they put Katy to sleep so she felt better with him there. The nurses were thoughtful to put her fluffy blanket in a blanket warmer during the surgery so it would be cozy warm when she woke up.
Katy is in recovery right now, and my parents haven’t seen her yet - she may be asleep still as of 12:45pm. The doctor said the surgery went well and they were able to do the whole thing laproscopically! He injected dye into her liver opening, and determined that her liver looked like it was functioning properly.
Thanks for praying! So many specific requests have been answered during the last 48 hrs. We’ve all felt a deep peace even at the hospital. It has been one of the best hospital experiences they’ve had!
Please pray that she continues to heal and doesn’t need more platelets (she had two “doses” pre-op). There is a little bleeding still, but the doctor thinks she will be OK.
