And we're off!!!
It has been a somewhat rough start (i.e. no room available when we arrived, confusion on the time of surgery, confusion in whether or not Mark should be a participant in a research study of a new anti-rejection medication, etc). But, in a few hours this will all be behind us! I will report to the OR at 11:45. Mark will then go back about 45 minutes later. The surgery will officially take place around 1:15. The surgery will last several hours-we think up to 4 hours. At the present, Mark is in Room Number 837. We think he will stay in this room after the surgery. We don't know my room number, but will post it as soon as we know. We are both pretty nervous right now and anxious for the entire ordeal to be over. Please continue to lift us up in prayer as we are relying on the Lord to help us through this difficult time!
