In Surgery

Briefly, I just left Chico being wheeled to the operating room after very compassionate and thorough preparations in pre op.  We were there for about an hour and a half.  Chico was at ease and smiling as he left for the grand adventure of the long awaited surgery. 

The primary surgeon admitted that he is not exactly sure how he will address the fractured femer.  He wants to fix it without greatly risking infection.  What can we be but grateful?

I'll keep you posted.  The surgery will be 3-5 hours, recovery before I can see him will also be long.  I'll post again tonight. 


  1. Bon courage for the next few hours Susan and Chico. May it all go extremely smoothly.

    Thinking about you all.

  2. So glad to hear Chico is in surgery. Progress! I'm glad Gordon will be with you tonight; Chico might not be too entertaining after his big adventure. Thinking of you folks.
