I talked to Anna this morning - she got the call.

Send her all your good thoughts and prayers, she will be going into surgery this afternoon. She sent me this picture of her room at St Lukes/Roosevelt Hospital via her phone. I'll post updates as they come in.

I'm talking to Anna right now - she's a urinator.

She's sounding good - a bit drugged but happy. The operation was pretty long but about what was expected. They already have her on immunosuppresents. She'll be in the post op room over night and then spend a few days on the transplant floor. I think I will head up to NYNY on Thursday. I'll bring my laptop so she can see all your good wishes but I think she can read IHD on her phone (once she has her charger, until then she's conserving her battery power).
