11/4/08 - 8:45am - Surgery Is Under Way!!!

We just got confirmation that the surgery is under way. Aimee and I got to the hospital this morning around 4:30 and spent a good 30 minutes with Kayleigh before they intubated her. She was so alert and excited to see us. It was very pleasant until they intubated her and the mood in the room did a complete 180. Kayleigh was not liking the tube in her throat at all. Our main concern was her hypertension and we wanted to make sure she was very comfortable so she didn't have another episode like last time. Unfortunately, the medication didn't kick in good enough and she was gagging on her tube. Aimee and I were really uncomfortable and as we watched them take her down to surgery, we were a nervous wreck. We both lost it when they took her in to the OR.

After we left, we met up with my Mom and ate breakfast. We are all up in the waiting room now waiting for more updates. They said they started already, so I am not sure when the next update will be. We are just trying to hold it together and be as patient as possible.

Thank you all for your prayers and God Bless!!!

The Freemans :)
