Surgery Duration

Jess went into surgery at 5:30-- she had to wait for the operating room to be available. I forgot to post on the last blog that the surgery will be about four hours. Scripps is one of the few places in the country that monitor neurological pathways when doing middle of the back surgery. I found that out today and thought that was pretty cool. Jessa's surgery will be in the T6-T10 vertebrate.

It was real boost for Jess to see Katelyn today and to read your emails. Your emails don't have to be funny but I think she really likes those ones. It's great to see her smile. I'm going to grab a quick bite to eat and then head back to the hospital. Keep praying!

Jake, You DO know how much we all appreciate the constant and detailed communication you are able relay. All the prayer warriors are keeping all of you lifted in prayer as the Holy Spirit comforts Jess as the hands of the skillful surgeon move as the Lord directs, repairing her spine better than ever.
