i apologize for keeping everyone waiting for today's status update...surgery went really well , they were able to successfully amputate the leg in a single surgery (they feared it may take 2 tries because of the lack of skin)
Dustin has been suffering from excrutiating pain today, but the doctors and nurses say that today will be the worst, and it will get significantly better from here. Dustin has finally fallen asleep for the evening (at least for now) i am sitting in a chair next to him manning his PCA drip (the pain meds button) that way he can sleep without having to wake up to hit the button when the meds wear off, so every 8 minutes he gets a dose of deloten, until midnight when they bring him another dose of oral meds
tomorrow i will write more, but i wanted to leave you with a quote from my husband...after surgery today he looked at me and asked what the date was, i of course answered April 7th, he responded...
"April 7th; that seems like a day to remember"
