Surgery Complete UPDATED 6:57PM

Just a quick note: surgery was successful. Dr. Inglis ended up taking out both the adenoids and tonsils. We are praying this will alleviate Sarah's breathing problem. He noted she would be here a "couple" days so not sure at this point whether they want to observe her for multiple nights or not. The good news is that Patty can breastfeed her immediately and she will be headed down here to Children's as soon as Sarah has her new room in the Giraffe wing.

Thanks for the prayers and please keep them coming. Patty has been feeling under the weather since yesterday afternoon and not sure if it is allergies or a cold. You know a hospital stay never helps that stuff.

UPDATE: Dr. Horslin stopped by during my stay today and noted that the EBV count was negative! This means no illness remaining in Sarah. Her immune system fought it off! They will be looking at her tonsils and adenoids to see if there was any PTLD present (this is the lymphoma) but hopefully that is not the case. She is really fussy and in a lot of pain according to Patty who took over at 3pm. Please pray for peace and rest for both Patty and Sarah; that Sarah would heal quickly; and that Patty would be overwhelmed by God's grace.
