THIRD UPDATE POST SURGERY

Kari is not break dancing in the middle of the hospital hallway, but she is doing very well. She was halfway awake when I got back from lunch, and Mike and Aaron were here with her. Aaron brought chocolates, which she hasn't even broken into yet! She is hooked up to the inflatable stockings which are pumping up and down at regular intervals. She has the BP monitor on her hand, making a see-through red tip on her index finger. And into her hand, along with the regular IV drip, is flowing her new best friend, morphine! When the nurse was in last she brought some ice chips, so Kari is getting her first nourishment of the day, calorie laden frozen water. She's looking good, and I imagine that at this time tomorrow she'll be begging me to bring her some coffee. Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes., and I will keep you informed.

Please give her a hug from Mary! I'll bet she'll be up and (nearly) running before the day's out.
