Quick Update

I just wanted to do a quick update. We got to the hospital before it was light out (6am) which is way too freakin' early. They started the IV in her port but don't even get me started on why a port that can't handle the fluids of surgery and tests was put in. At least the anesthesiologist knows Taylor so he doesn't mind sedating her with the port and then starting a bigger IV after she's asleep in the OR.

They were able to move the VNS without major issues and she was out of surgery after 2 hours. Taylor's doctor is really good about staying on top of her pain because he said that is going to be one of her major issues right now along with avoiding any post-op infections.

Taylor is lying in her bed, flipping the TV channels, drugged to the hilt. She is supposed to rest for the next few days but keeping her down is a hard thing. Right now, it isn't an issue because I think this pain is bad for her. Normally she has a high pain tolerance. If she just lays around, she must be hurting.

I took some pics and I will post them later.
