January 20, 2012
Madeleine started her day bright and early and checked in at the hospital at 7 am. First, she had a procedure where they used a CT scan to help mark one of her lymph nodes (on the opposite side from the main surgery). Here's Madeleine enjoying the fact that step #1 is done.
By 9:30 am, they had finished all the prep for her main surgery. She was pretty brave through it all - and then the IV med's kicked in and she was feeling really good. We prayed for her, gave hugs, and off she went. Here's a few pictures taken just before she went in for surgery.
There are two surgeons working together on her procedure. The doctors told us that the surgery could take up to 8 hours. (We haven't heard anything yet.)
Thanks everyone for praying!
