Out of surgery
It is 2:30 p.m. and Dr. Atwell (surgeon) popped in to say that the procedure went well, and mom should be back in the room momentarily. Apparently bleeding is an issue (incision in her leg) and with the Lovenox that is to be expected since it is an anti-clot med, so they are keeping a lot of pressure on the incision area. He'll be back in to check in on her in a moment.
