It's a new record! It was just over 10 1/2 hours door to door today AND, yes, Sumana did have surgery! She didn't go in til 11:10, was out by 1:30 and on the road home by 4:30!
Her lungs sounded pretty good at 9:30, but they wanted her to have another nebulizer treatment before surgery. Dr. Sanders looked at her x-rays again and he found a way to eek out another 2-3 cm on her current rods, so he changed his plan to a simple expansion, instead of the more involved rod replacement.
Everything went well and aside from the usual pain, Sumana seems to be doing well and is very happy to be home!
