11 HOURS LATER AND MY MOM'S WHIPPLE IS FINALLY FINISHED. THEY TOOK HER INTO THE OR AT 740am AND BROUGHT HER OUT TO THE SURGICAL ICU AT ABOUT 700pm. THE DOCTORS SAID THAT SHE DID GREAT. THEY WERE ABLE TO GET THE ENTIRE SPECIMEN OUT AND ALSO HAD TO DO A PORTAL VEIN RESECTION. THE TUMOR WAS SMALL BUT IN A VERY DIFFICULT LOCATION. THAT IS WHY IT TOOK SO LONG. SHE LOST ALOT OF BLOOD AND THEY ARE LEAVING HER ON A VENTILATOR UNTIL TOMORROW. SHE LOOKS GOOD, SLEEPING RIGHT NOW. WE WON'T HAVE ANY PATHOLOGY REPORTS FOR AT LEAST A WEEK. BUT EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD!! THIS MAY HAVE BEEN THE LONGEST DAY OF MY LIFE. THANKS FOR THE ABUNDANCE OF PRAYERS. I'LL POST TOMORROW WHEN I GET HOME FROM HOSPITAL.
