Sitting in one of the conferring rooms waiting for the surgeon to finish dictating his Serious Medical Notes.
Updates to follow in this post.
Update: One valve replaced, one bypass. No transfusions (yet). Aortic valve was "good enough." No surprises, he says! --We'll be able to see her in an hour or so. Medical Niece says we could not have asked for better news.
Update 2: 1:10 pm. Anesthesiologist is talking with us, says she is in her room now and doing well. On a vent and getting the usual "interesting" brew of post-operative meds. Not conscious yet and still on a ventilator.
Dr. Sleepytime left and the Chaplain took over for him. She's telling us we might be able to visit Mom in twenty minutes or so.

That sounds like wonderful news!
Yay! And bless you both.
Best 2 words to hear from a surgeon. Far better than "What the" or "uh oh."
Great news. Praying for her rapid recovery.
Looking forward to the "Home 1" post.
And, how are YOU doing?
Fair warning: She's gonna be zoned for a long time. My surgery ended at noon, but I didn't really "wake up" until 6:30 AM the next morning. Patience, patience, patience ...
I recommend ice chips. Her throat and mouth will be dry as a bone for two days, and ice chips will help immensely.
Me? I'm zonked. Dozed off for awhile.
I can't think of better news!
I am actually amazed at this Internet thing. It's wonderful to truly care and send well wishes across the void to someone I've never met. How is it I have come to care about the mom of a blogger I don't even really know personally?
It's a kind of magic.
Well-put. My feelings, exactly.
I'm glad the news is good, and I'll add my prayers that the news stays good.
Wow! Great news!
Outstanding! Our prayers for a speedy and worry free recovery!
Hurrah! Best to you and Mom X! :)
Thanks for the wonderful news!
Way to go MomX and Doctors and nurses!!
