The nurse just came in and said the OR just called. She's prepping Tricia now. I'll post again when Tricia is out. She'll go to the ICU for a few hours while she wakes up and they observe her, and then she'll be back in her room again.
Thanks for your prayers over the next few hours. Please, pray that they get the samples they need, that the recovery will be quick and easy over the next 48 hours (including the removal of the chest tubes), and that her stay in the ICU will be incredibly short this evening.
