Surgery Day

Yay we made it to the hospital and so did the bone flap! I received a call from the hospital this morning, the anesthesiologist was looking for us, they thought we were still admitted in the hospital. When they found out we were gone they were quite concerned that we didn't know about the surgery. Glad someone called last night.

We arrived with Jared excited and happy to be getting his skull back...until we hit the elevators, then the anxiety kicked in, I felt so bad for him. He was begging me to let him go home. Jared's biggest concern is that he will wake up during surgery. After some consoling, he asked me to say a prayer for him while he said his own. After, he asked if he could get a blessing. We asked the nurse who located some elders in the hospital to come and give him a blessing. Again, I am grateful for the church and for the priesthood that worthy men can hold. One of the elders happened to be one of Jareds techs from our stay, that added some more comfort. Jared is doing well right now and his anxiety is gone.

Dr. Riva-Cambri is doing his surgery and they expect it to last about two and a half hours.
