I have been thinking of you and praying for you this whole week. So glad to hear Tuesday went well and can't wait for details! Xox to you and Lauren!

Re: Lauren's Surgery

Hi Everyone,
Forgive me for not writing sooner. I am staying with Lauren in the hospital and I was too tired to update. Lauren is doing well. She was in the SICU last night and had a really rough time. She had a lot of pain in her shoulders, especially her left one. The doctors explained that this was from the retractors and jostling her insides around. She has so many lines coming out of her, it is crazy. Hopefully, she will be able to get out of bed and walk tomorrow. Her blood pressure went too low after trying today. The doctors and nurses here are all so great. She is getting excellent care!! Take care and thanks for all the nice comments.

Love,

Re: Lauren's Surgery

Thank you Pam. I hope Lauren has an easier time tonight. Don't worry about us, you need some rest for the long days ahead of you while Lauren is in the hospital. I am just so elated, excited and over the moon for you both and may Lauren have a quiet and comfortable recovery. What is really scary is when you start to like Hospital food!!!  My love to you both!
