Dr Asano just stopped in, surgery is almost over, no major complications... we saw a picture he took of the hemisphere... Amazing. The whole middle area was missing. Dr Sood should be down about 430 to talk with us. Not sure if she needed a transfusion or not. And I had an amazing wonderful surprise! A lab mom who was in Detroit popped in to see us! My mom and I were blown away... She brought flowers ad yummy Italian pastries. Saratoga Hospital Lab you guys are the best!!! Xozoxox. Everyone just went to grab lunch... I'm kind of hanging by myself still trying to absorb. We probably won't get to see her til 630 or 7 when she gets to ICU. It's almost over (this part at least) I can't believe how fast it's actually gone by. I can't believe it's almost 4. I can't believe I just saw my childs brain. But I had to. I had to see for myself. Something that will never leave my memory.... But I'll never forget how that impacted the last year and a half. It's amazing how fast the day has gone. I was so worried about what I would do, how would I be during the wait.. but aside from some occasional tears ( and LOTS when I kisses her goodbye and watches as Larry carried her in back). I'm ok. Maybe cuz I'm
in denial, or compartmentalizing like usual.. or maybe it's the complete faith I have in her drs... But I'm ok. I'm sure when I see her poor swollen face I'll lose it.. But right now I'm ok. And ok isn't bad. I'm ok with ok.
