All is well - praise the Lord! My daughter's surgery was over in an hour and a half (the last one lasted six and a half hours) and by 11:00 this morning she was in a room. Last time she was asleep for 2 days; today she hasn't closed her eyes (or her mouth) yet! She hasn't even been drowsy! She has walked with a walker to the bathroom twice, ate a cheeseburger with no nausea, and swears she can already tell she has relief from the pain in her hips. Her incision is a little uncomfortable and is seeping just a little but otherwise it looks good. It's in the middle of her lower back, below her waist and not nearly as large as I thought it would be. I won't be surprised if she gets out of the hospital tomorrow - last time she was there about 4 days. I'll be bringing her home with me so her husband can work since they own their own business but I know we'll have a good time hanging out for a few days. God has answered our prayers is a wonderful way - thank you for petitioning Him with me.
