She's out of surgery and she did great. I am so so thankful. I was really very worried. I will give more details later - I am updating from the iPad and it is difficult to type a lot.
It has been super crazy. So busy that I haven't even been able to call my own mother! Sorry Mom! The cell phone reception was terrible until we got upstairs. And now it's too late to call.
They have a suction dressing on the wound now. And she has a new cast. It is very different. More on that later. But it now has a hole in the back for access to the wound. It is so gross. Seriously. Might post pics later. The incision is longer than I expected and she had to reopen most of it. It looks like we got to it before the infection got to the hardware (screws) so that is great.
I am so glad I brought her. More time could have made this a much different story.
She is trying to sleep now, but they are putting a foley in her because she hasn't peed and they want to know her fluid output.
I will try to get some sleep now. Heather had to drive back home. She made this a much more bearable experience for me. So thank you, Heather!
Thanks for all your support!
