BIG DAY


Today is hubby's day for surgery to repair the aneurysm in his ankle. They have just taken him into the OR. They are unable to fix the aneurysm by doing an angiogram. So we are headed into a 3 hour surgery. They will need to see if they are able to repair the artery and if they can get a vein from his leg to do this repair.

I brought my laptopto pass the time. I am trying to plan 2009 races. It will keep my mind ahead to the future which I know will be good.

Waddling and praying..............

UPDATE : 1:00PM
Surgery is done. Things went well. They found a 0.6 cm hole in his artery. They were able to take a vein from his foot and repair the hole. He will be going to Step-down ICU and may get to go home Saturday. The aneurysm itself was over 5 cm round.

Waddling to Recovery...........
