Update

Surgery went as expected – It took about four hours and we are now in the PACU and T is sleeping.

The nurse told us that as he started coming to he began retching so they threw something into his IV and he went back to sleep. We’re waiting to see what happens when he wakes up again.

Please pray against nausea and for adequate pain management. Because of previous spinal surgery they could not use an epidural and had to use a femoral nerve block. They could only block pain below a certain point on his leg so he will be feeling pain above that level that will need to be managed through oral meds. The nerve block will wear off over the next 18 hours.
