Surgery Day

So yesterday Kathryn only had one word for the surgeon “careful”.  She wants him to be careful.  After talking to us fro 45 minutes or more I think he will be extra “careful”.  Scott and he talked a while about cars and the other medical guys that Scott runs the track with.  It was a great connection.  Our day nurse sure made sure that we got to see the surgeon Dr. Hamill.  I think she would have chased him down.  I’m sure she expressed our need to get this done and not wait for Monday.  I think Kathryn’s Doctor (from Mary Bridge) expressed his concern too.  Everyone is doing their best to get Kathryn home ASAP but within safe measures.

We had another great nurse Roberta last night.  We went down to eat while Roberta got Kathryn all tucked in to bed.  She had a good night sleep.  All food off by 2 am or when the bag runs out which ever one comes first.  A bag of platelets given just an hour before surgery.  She is still eating them up.  So here we go….


  1. Good Luck Kathryn! I will be thinking of you! I am sure you will do so well :)



  2. Sending prayers for a smooth, simple surgery and a quick and pain-free recovery so you can all go home! God bless you, your family and your medical team!

  3. Sending love and positive energy your way. Praying for a smooth day!

  4. The prayers are constant!!!!! Aunty Ket, Uncle Pete, Kainoa, Janice, Grandma and Grandpa
