(cali time) 2:35pm (wi time)
The nurse just came out and asked us to come back to the surgical area, away from the small waiting room. My stomach lept into my throat. But, he immediately told us that everything is fine, but things are taking a lot longer than figure "a couple more hours". That means instead of our estimated 6 hours, it's looking like 8+. I am not concerned, Dr. Lewin is a perfectionist, which is great for Manny, great for us. He said that there is only the one blood vessel feeding everything so to remove and reinsert a new implant gets extremely tricky.
Mother of the Year walked 2 blocks to Rodeo Drive during surgery! I didn't go in any stores (obviously, not in any mindset to shop, I just wanted the fresh air). Regardless, while the TMHTM shirt is awesome, it's not exactly Rodeo Drive appropriate and I think a scene from Pretty Woman would be reinacted!
Thanks to Aunt Val who is taking Abe & Eli to the ocean today to play and for Uncle Derek for helping me refresh the website.
