Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

Surgery started at 3:45 p.m.

Judy was picked up to go into surgery at 3:45 p.m. That little woman is something--she wore out the first anesthesiologist and they had to get a new one. :) Seriously, it seemed like with the airline pilots that after too many hours on the job a new crew is called in. Quite frankly, we were happy with the change to Dr. Bijak as he seemed to be much warmer and more personal than the first one.

I briefly talked to Dr. Phillips who told me that he will see me after surgery. His entire demeanor was calm and confidence inspiring.

Judy was as ready as it comes after the long wait and not being allowed to have even a sip of water.

We have an assigned room--#519 here at Covenant-Lakeside. I am sure Judy will be out for the night when she returns from surgery. Of course, I will stay here all night. Expect an update later this evening.
