Well, it's 10:24 pm and I'm just back from the hospital. Dr. Tobias called at about 9:40 and said everything went well. Joan was a little agitated coming out on antithesia, but, they say that's not unusual after a long surgery. I went over and was allowed a few minutes with Joan about 10:10. She was not awake, but, looked okay. I will check in on her first thing in the morning.
This has been one of the longest days of my life. I know the Doctors and medical personnel here are first class, but, that's my DW their working on. And there's nothing I can do except wait. I'll try to rest tonight. Tomorrow we start the slow process of recovery.
