Mellie's Great!!!!

At 11:00 p.m. EDST the doctor came out and told us that Mellie's surgery went very well. They got here at 5:30 this morning, it took until 8:30 to prep her, and until 10:30 before surgery started. They got to the tumor at 3:00 this afternoon. They had told us 8 hours or so but it was 12 1/2. We were starting to unravel. Fortunately Kurt had finally stopped pacing and had just laid down (that's to Dr. Doojies' little pharmacy) when the doctor came in so he was surprised rather than looking up at the 5th floor waiting to see him walk down all day. The doctor said her brain stem and facial nerves were already responding very well. We will have to wait to midnight or after to get a peek in ICU. I shall update all y'all tomorrow. But until then, thank all of you for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers and please continue as she has quite a road ahead to get back up and running at full speed.

So happy she did well! Sounds like she went into the surgery buoyed up by the love of family and friends. The pre-op luncheon in that marvelous Doojiefied dining room of yours looked amazing - I think Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion should do a feature article on your home and work! Any further word on how Melissa's recovery is going? Best --Patrice
