Friends, here we go. Nancy will be in surgery from about 2:30 to 4:30 this afternoon. They are doing a partial thoracic laminectomy, removing some bone from three of her vertebrae so that they can drain her epidural abscess. This will relieve pressure on her spinal cord, remove a major source of pain, and make it easier for the septic infection to clear from her body.
I hope and pray that this marks the turning point in her recovery, and that she gets better from here on out, over the next couple of weeks. I will send an update when they call me after surgery.
