I just received this message from Rick Smitherman:
“She is out and it went as planned. The surgeon decided to leave her asleep tonight with the ventilator tube in, until tomorrow, since she ate breakfast – to be sure she stays stable and doesn’t swallow any food down her airway. He also said that now her brain can start healing without causing any more damage.”
Thank you for the prayers, sweet comments and encouragement!
