Surgery update - thumbs up

Hi all,

Kaitlyn's surgery apparently went fine, everything appeared to go in a straightforward fashion and she's busy recovering from that now. She has had aa dedicated nurse assigned to her since birth. Her regular day nurse had her day off today, but she came in anyways because, as she put it, she didn't want Liz and Brian to have to go through it alone. That shows the type of care they're providing her, these guys are awesome.

Unfortunately, they're becoming more concerned with Liz. They've ordered a full CAT scan on her and, pending the outcome of that, say they may have to operate to make repairs if necessary. They originally told her they couldn't get her in for a scan there for another 4 days, but after speaking with one of the doctors, they were able to fit her in today.

I'll let you know as I hear more.

Thanks,

Gary
