Well Wednesday came, the day we were dreading and wishing for. We woke to the news of the London Fire Block does it sound terrible that I was thankful we were not going to a London Hospital? The stress of Living with a AAA is hard on all the family. If you keep thinking of all the what if's it is crazy. Any way Operation went ok, took 5 hours plus an hour to prepare,sticking all the lines in. He was expected to be in ICU for 1-3 days. Home in 7-10 days. Did not quite work out that way for us. Will be a long recovery, yesterday we were told to prepare ourselves, multiple organ failure, pneumonia and ARDs. Wow what a difference 24 hours makes! He is still with us, still on ventilator, still sedated but stable, how I love those words STABLE I want to shout it out. Who knows what our journey will be but I feel blest, Jon is stable, and that is all I need for now. I hope that I am not upsetting anyone waiting, Jon chose the Open Surgery we knew it was high risk, we knew there could be complications. I was told though even had we gone for The other one he would have ended up with the open as the way his Aneurysm was gave no other option.
Keep us in your prayers please, Jon is still very ill, not doing anything for himself but stable and that is enough for now.
