Well I wanted to update everyone on Tina's progress.
We got to the hospital at 6:30 this morning, she got into the OR around 8:15 for what was going to be about 2 hours-turned into more like 7 hours. She was transported up to the ICU where she will be on a breathing tube until sometime tomorrow morning. Tina is asleep and very well taken care of. She can not have visitors or balloons from what I was told. The good news is that 50% of the AVM was blocked off and over the course of the night the swelling will be watched, easier to leave in the breathing tube than to try to put it back in later. If all is well she will come home tomorrow sometime with no real restrictions other than weight, like picking up the kids. My parents are here with the girls and Rachel was a huge help in picking up Riddy today and Sue, Tina's mom will get Riddy on Weds.
I will update at some point tomorrow, hopefully with Tina sitting right here. She is the most wonderful women in my life and I'm very greatful for everyone's thoughts and prayers.
