They took her back...



They didn't take her until about 1:30 p.m. She was very happy and smiling at everyone. I have to say I love all of the doctors involved. They were so patient and willing to discuss everything. They are going to still do the general anesthesia but also an epidural for pain management. They want to lessen the amount of narcotics they give her since this will play a large part in her apnea episodes and post-op recovery. They anticipate the surgery to take about 3-4 hours then to recovery.
