It looks like it's really going to happen today, finally. In a couple hours she will be taken off to prep, then get it done, then recovery, then back to maybe the same room, she will however be transferred eventually to "the floor" as they call it, otherwise known as the regular rooms.
Elise has been doing very well, the only reason they have kept her here in the ICU is because of her ventrical drain, which needs special attention. When that is replaced she can be on "the floor".
Wish us luck.
