They took Mikala into surgery at 10am this morning. The doctor is planning to have her arms "casted". He is really not taking any chances, but I am so nervous for her. She is going to be in ICU for 24 hours with a breathing tube and highly sedated. They want the swelling to have a chance to go down before they let her breath on her own. This may be a good thing since we have noticed that her O2 levels are usually very low post op, and with all that swelling in the throat I am sure it will make getting oxigen even more difficult. Our hearts are completely broken for her, please keep praying that she will have the strength to endure.... she is going to need once this is over!
