1:40pm still longer

Everything is still ok. Every part of this surgery has been more complex than anticipated, which is just how Manny always rolls. The nurse tells us that Dr Lewin will work as long as necessary because not only is she a perfectionist, but she wants it especially perfect for Manny after all he has been through (xoxoxoxo). She is so good to him. We are so lucky to have her. I've been pretty good all day but hearing this gets me emotional. Even when we were at the pre-op, sitting in the patient room, Dr Lewin's dad popped in to say hi (he was in the area). Dr. Lewin says, "Popsy (?), look whose in my office..." and he recognized Manny right away and said "hey, Manny, I've seen a video of yours...."
We don't have an estimated completion time now- just, "until it's perfect". He has been under for 7 hours.
