Stephanie is Out of Surgery!

This is Stephanie’s friend, Hailey. As mentioned in her previous post, she asked that I update you on her condition post-op. I am pleased to report that the surgery went very, very well.

Scotlon called me at 2:30 this afternoon to let me know that Stephanie had received a temporary nerve-blocker in her right leg in order to help alleviate some of her pain during recovery & that she was being wheeled into the operating room. Her surgeon expected the procedure to last about 45 minutes, but it may be almost 2 hours before Scotlon could visit her in the recovery room.

Scotlon called again at 4:50 to let me know that Stephanie was resting in the recovery room. Her surgeon was very pleased with the success of her surgery & he expects her to make a complete & normal recovery. Scotlon was unsure when Stephanie will be discharged, but hopefully they will be headed home within an hour or two.

Thank you for your prayers, I know that Stephanie & Scotlon are both extremely appreciative of every prayer, every thought & every kind word of encouragement. Please continue to pray for Stephanie’s recovery. I know that she is enthusiastically awaiting the day when she can wear her beloved pumps once again!

With much gratitude,
Hailey

P.S. Stephanie made it without her coffee! There were some harsh words muttered under her breath, I’m sure…but she’s a trooper!!
