Here is a little update on the adventure seeker Christie. She came out of surgery and back to the room around 10pm our time. She was given an epidural for anesthesia so she was awake for the surgery. Not cool. However, the effects of the epidural lasted through the night keeping the pain at bay. Very cool. She got some much needed sleep and still hasn't recovered complete feeling in her leg yet. The surgeon said that if she continues to progress she may be discharged tomorrow.
The nurses brought us a cd this morning that contained a series of photos during the surgery. These were all x-rays. I picked the last one to post so you could see the plate and 7 screws installed in the femur. Thanks for all of the encouraging words and prayers. We will continue to post updates as they come.
