A surgery update...

Well, we are home after a very long day but Hubby made it through the surgery perfectly! There was a little more work in there then what the doc thought at first, but it wasn't anything that the doc and his team couldn't handle.
It was a long day starting at 345 am - I got up and got dressed ( dressed as much as one can get dressed while still trying to sleep through it all!)  and then made sure the truck was all packed with everything we needed- Oh did I mention that we didn't get to bed until 1am? Then it was time to get the kids up, pillows packed,and we were on our way. We left a little early hoping to stop by Krispy Kreme but they were closed at 5 am. So we headed to the office, got there about 15mins. When we got in there I have to say- they were prompt, starting things right on the time that they said they were!  Surgery started at 7 am - kids took a nap on their blankets and pillows for about 1.5 hours at about 830 am. then by 10 am doc came out and said he was all done and gave me the update on what he had done, by 2 am Mike was home! It was a looooooong day but the kids were awesome for the most part ( and with out eating all day too!). DH is home and sleeping ( living) on the sofa for a while ( days even weeks) . Thank you for all of the prayers and thoughts on this. The Lord is a great God and I am thankful that I am a child of his. I never had any worries about anything going wrong, but it is nice to know that we have such a great God on our side.
I have some pictures to post  little later ( in a day or two) I am sooo very tired at the moment that I am going to call it a night- we have another doc apt. in the morning at 730 am .... got. to. get. some. ssssleeep.
