Lots of ups and downs....

First I will start by saying this is not Melinda, this is Todd.

Today has been a day that we have been working towards since the beginning of July. The day started off going well. Melissa's blood was clotting normally and they could procede with surgery. The surgery lasted about 2.5 hours and went as planned according to the surgeon, who has been nothing but EXCELLENT! After she was in her room after recovery things went a little down hill. She was feeling a little queasy and hot. She said she had to go to the bathroom. The OT , her nurse, and I helped her to the bathroom and she about passed out in the bathroom. Her blood pressure had DROPPED extremely low.
We got Melissa back into the bed and she started feeling better. The nurse contacted the doctor and she came right back in to see her. She immediately said that there is some extra bleeding and that they will have to do surgery again. That is where we are right now. Melissa is back in surgery and we are waiting for the doctor to come out and let us know what is going on. Please continue to pray and send us your positive thoughts. We appreciate EVERYTHING.
