Dustin is out of surgery

We are in recovery with Dustin. We have been here about 1 hour. Surgery went well. Dr. Patel said there were a whole 10 cc's of infection that he pulled out. He said there was bad scarring from the infection (all of which will go away) but he said it explains all the horrible extent of the pain he was in. He removed the tonsils & adenoids (sp?)

Dust is in terrible pain. They just got it under control after 3 doses of morphine and Larry asked me to sit down and update everyone and let you know what's going on and ask you to specifically pray for his pain. He calmed down about 30 min ago now that the meds kicked in. Dr. Patel said the first hour is the worst but by tonight he should want something cold to eat/drink.

In just a moment we are going upstairs to his room. He will be able to have visitors. A lot of people have asked about that. In a few hours I would think he would be ready.

An infectious disease specialist is coming to see him later on today or in the morning about how things are coming with the MRSA infection. We will give everybody an update. Please pray for the pain, the infection to go away.

We appreciate all your prayers.
