Yeah..she's out!

As of 3:30, Maranda was out of surgery. The surgeon came up to Lisa's floor to give us the report. He said everything went as planned and she did very good. We're sitting outside of recovery waiting for them to come get us.

The surgeon said she'll be on ICU today and then they would move her to the floor tomorrow. She could be out as early as 2 days depending on how she feels. Her return to school will be based on her own judgement and pain threshold.

Ok....I'm now sitting beside her bed in recovery typing. She is still out of it, but has squeezed my hand in response to questions and whispered she was thirsty. Yeahhhhhhhhhh......it feels like it has been 20 years since I've seen her....I'm so happy. She's here, she's sleeping, she's breathing. Life is good!
