Loooooooooooong Surgery Day
It is now 5PM and I just got home from the hospital. Cari's surgery was to be at 7AM but she actually went into surgery around 3:30PM (a real bummer). When they checked her platelet count it was below normal, therefore, surgery had to be postponed. They gave her one blood transfusion and then after an hour drew blood to check the count. After another hour we got the results. Results required another transfusion. As always Cari is a trooper but she was very uncomfortable with the pain in her upper back, shoulder area and new pain down her arm. And since she had nothing to eat or drink (especially coffee) she was very hungry and had a bad headache. Her surgery should take about 2 hours and without really having to ask..........your prayers , care and loving thoughts are much appreciated. We pray for a peaceful and restful sleep tonight.
