The surgeon came by a short while ago to check on Tina's progress. He seemed quite pleased and expects to be releasing her tomorrow assuming no set-backs appear over night. While here, he showed us the MRI scans from before the surgery. It is much clearer than the CAT scans and makes it really obvious just how big this thing was. He said it was "about as big as these things get" and would have been growing for years to achieve that size. We asked about getting copies and he said he would have a CD of the images made for us to have at our next office visit in about a week. He is about as nice and down to earth person as you would ever want to meet with none of the super-man affect that seems to be the reputation of surgeons in general.
So we are hoping for an uneventful night and springing Tina out of here tomorrow. We'll keep you posted.
