Sarah emerged from surgery at 10pm tonight, after 12 hours on the operating table. I saw her at about 1030, just as she was starting to waken from the anaesthetic. She was in quite a lot of pain and discomfort but after about half an hour of adjusting morphine and panadeine levels and organising some dry mouth relief and the oxygen feed, she was much more settled when I left at about midnight. There are wires and drips everywhere and she is going to be waken through the night for ongoing but critical tests. The doctor is very pleased with the result of the surgery and at this stage there are no complications (not expecting any, but still very early days!). Sarah’s sister Anna was by her bed which made Sarah very happy – so thanks Anna for being there for her! Day 2 tomorrow…

      Thanks for the very early morning update – a long wait for you, I’m glad it’s over. That bit anyway. Sarah would have been so comforted to see you and Anna by her side. Still early days but it’s sounding like a success.
