Surgery is complete!
The surgery is complete! All went well! There were no complications. Dr. Gedaly said the hernia was quite large, but he anticipates that Mark will recover from the surgery with no problem. Mark has been in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit most of the afternoon. Transplant patients are usually placed in rooms that require special preparation due to the patient's immunosuppression. We had to wait until the room was ready. However, we're now in room 832. We should find out in the morning what the Team will do about Mark's increase in creatinine. Mark is in some significant pain. Please pray for him tonight!
