Surgery Information

Hi all! Tomorrow Blakely will be having her "hopefully" final tumor resection surgery. I am extremely anxious to have this behind us. Her surgery starts at 7:45 Eastern time tomorrow morning, bright and early. Jeff & I are planning on arriving to the hospital around 6 or 6:30 to spend time with her before the wisk her away from us. The surgeons are anticipating her surgery lasting around 4 hours from start to finish. The said the day will go like this...
The surgeons will arrive at bedside to go over information and meet with the nurses for final evaluation. We will all go down to the floor below the RICNIC where surgery will be. Jeff & I will wait in the surgical waiting room. We are hoping they will update us half way through, but we are not sure. Once she is done they will take her back up to the ICU and she will get all settled in then they will call for us. I am planning on spending the night there, no way I'm leaving my girl.
The surgeons are hoping for a straight forward surgery with little to no complications.
She is doing good considering she hasn't eaten in 48 hours and has about another 10 days of no eating. Can you imagine? She also has developed a little pink eye and hates her eye drops. I would too though.

Please pray for her tomorrow morning. We have made it so far to have something happen now!
