Gail and I just arrived at Duke Medical Center where our daughter-in-law Tricia is presently undergoing a double lung transplant. She's been in surgery now for a little over an hour, and is expected to be in surgery a total of 7-9 hours (the average).
On the way up to the NICU waiting room (we're hanging out here so we can slip in and visit Gwyneth through the night) I stopped in the cafeteria for a cup of caffeine. Actually the cafeteria here at Duke has excellent coffee.
Gail has slipped back to visit Gwyneth. Agnes (Tricia's mom) is looking at today's pics on Nate's camera. Nate is trying to find something worth watching on the TV. Don, Tricia's dad is on his way from home.
When we get word from the OR or have something else to say I'll update. Check Nate's blog as well during the night if you're up or in another hemisphere!
Thanks for the prayers, Gail drove all the way (3.5 hours) without incident.
