Gwenyth's base is negative. That means a lot to all of you I know, but in actions that translates that she's been bumped from "2nd case" to "1st case" meaning she will leave the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU, aka Myers and Laura's new home for the next few weeks) for surgery prep at 6:30am rather than 11ish.
The surgery will last for 4 1/2 - 5 hours. We'll get to talk to the surgeon Dr. Spray before and after the surgery, and we'll get updates every hour. Which will leave us a lot of time to update this blog.
In a few minutes we hope to get to hold Gwen for a little while.
Pray that Gwenyth's stats remain the same overnight. They are hoping that by scheduling her surgery earlier that they will not have to start "interventions" such as a breathing tube to hold her over until surgery.
The 48 hours after surgery are critical. Pray that it all goes smoothly.
