I just got news that Nanny is out of surgery. It was 4 hours long with no complications. Praise God! She is on a ventilator, like we were told, and she is in the ICU. She ended up having a small bowel resection b/c there were lots of adhesions from scar tissue. The pulmonologist will be in tomorrow to determine when to start weaning her off of the ventilator (the sooner the better b/c the longer you are vented, the harder it is to wean).
So, so far, so good. She still has a long road to recovery...but for now, she is alive and that's what I asked everyone to pray for.
