The procedure went beautifully. It started later than we'd planned because of a backlog in the procedure center, but Elizabeth was a real trooper and didn't complain about not getting any food an water for 16 hours. Matt amazingly had no patients scheduled for the morning so he was able to sit with us...a welcome treat. She came out of anesthesia really well and immediately began drinking and eating...a good sign. She had to lay still on her back or side for 6 hours...and even that didn't take too much coaxing...I think the non-stop TV helped. They admitted us to 8West and we even got our old private room for the night. The night went well, and this morning we got the heck out of dodge as fast as they could fill out our discharge paperwork and went home to the best surprise...Grandma and Grandpa Harms have arrived!
We don't expect to hear anything before next week...probably Thursday or Friday, so we'll let you know when we hear something. Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers!
