We got here at 530 and they almost immediately too Mark back for prep. I was starting to get nervous because his surgery was scheduled for 8 an at 730 I still had not seen him. They called me back shortly thereafter and then took him back at 8, just as scheduled. I just got a call that they had started and everything is going well and he is doing fine. Now I'm back to waiting. I just thought I'd update y'all. *UPDATE 1* He is still in surgery. They just called to update me again and said that they are still working to get the nodule out of the chest but things are going just fine. Gosh, the longer it takes the more nervous I get and every time try call my heart jumps into my throat. I'm ok though. :)
He is out of surgery and emerging went well. The doctor said that it turned out to be just a fatty tumor, I'm not sure exactly what that is but the doctor made it sound like it was more of just fatty tissue or a cyst. Anyway, Mark is doing well and in recovery. I will be able to see him in about an hour once her gets up to ICU. He will be in the ICU for 24 hours and then moved to a room. He has a chest tube in right now and instead of the three small incisions he has one small and one about 2-3 inches long. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, please keep them coming.
I can't edit the OP anymore from my phone since I edited it from the iPad, I guess, but I'm back with Mark now and he is doing ok. He is in and out of it, still coming out of anesthesia I suppose, and he is stiff he says, but he is good.
I will say, I hope to never have to see him hooked up to all I these machines and wires again. As prepared as I was I don't think you are ever THAT prepared. His lips are so pale. I really just want to crawl in bed with him and lay in his arms with my head on his chest...that'll be a while though, I suppose.
