Some good news...Tricia was in serious pain immediately out of surgery, but after a few hours in the OR recovery ward, her pain meds finally caught up with her pain and she was able to be discharged to spend the night in our hotel after all!
After a good night's sleep, we were home by 2pm on Wednesday afternoon, just in time to tuck Gwyneth in for her nap. Tricia has had little to no pain since Tuesday evening and the mininmal bleeding has ceased. She will be on pain meds and heavy steroids for a few more days, which means she's feeling a bit loopy and having trouble sleeping for long stretches of time.
Of course, it's too early to identify any noticeable difference in her breathing, smell, taste, etc.
Thanks again for the prayer...Tuesday was a very long day and it was encouraging to know so many were praying for Tricia.
