11:00 a.m. Update from the OR

The nurse is getting to take a break from the operation. She is wonderful; beautiful smile and sweet. She said everything is going well. She emphasized several times that this is going to take a long time,...a long time. The surgeons are doing bone work right now. They have already taken the fat graft. This is a a procedure in which some fat is taken from the belly to use a plugs for the holes that are drilled in the skull to get to the tumor inside. That part is done microscopically. So, the bone work involves cutting out the bones that service the right ear (remember the hammer, anvil and stapes from science class)and drilling the holes in the skull to prepare for the microscopic work.
Paul and Shirly Johnson shared a verse that I think is really cool.
It is II Chronicles 16:9. It says, "The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him." Ths sounds like Tracy to me. Rock on, guys.
