Today is the big day. She is in surgery and has been since about 8:30 this morning. We had to be at the hospital at 6:00. Surgery will run 10-12 hours, the first two with the neurosurgeon, the rest with the plastic surgeon. The plastic guy will build her a nose out of her rib. He said the rib cage will be the sorest part. We will stick here until she is out of recovery. Charlene will spend the night tonight. We have LOTS of pictures by now. I will share three from this morning and yesterday.
Discussing the CAT scan with Dr. Wetjen, the neurologist.
Off to surgery.
