Vivian, post-surgery, wearing her magical rinseless shampoo cap
The operating room was backed up, so Vivian didn't go into surgery until close to 6:15. The procedure went very well, and Vivian was back in her room around 7 o'clock (ICU patients bypass the recovery room). The surgeon elected to perform a more "durable" version of the surgery. I can't imagine what made him think that was necessary!
I'm a little concerned about how Vivian will do when she wakes up now that she's more aware of where she is. Please pray that Vivian will remain somewhat calm until we can go home and that she will not succeed in pulling out her PICC line or the new contraption in her stomach. Pray that Vivian's speech and oral motor skills continue to improve. Praise God for the miracles we have seen in Vivian. Her recovery thus far is truly a testament to the power of prayer.
Robert and I are so very grateful.

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
