I have been sitting here with DH and some aunts/cousins. They began a craniectomy on my dad at 3 today. His prep began just before 1. We still have a long wait ahead of us. Surgery itself could be 7 hours. Recovery will be weeks in the hospital and months at home. Every time our waiting room phone rings, my heart comes out of my chest. Thanks for the posts today. They have helped to keep my mind busy.
