Update from David

Aloha to our friends & family,

As I type this, Theresa is traveling to the O.R. in preparation for the surgery to repair her multiple neck and arm fractures.  The procedure is scheduled to take five hours so I will provide an update at around 2000h Hawaii time, or 0600h GMT.  With friends & family up to 18 time zones away, saying Tuesday evening doesn't mean much when it's already Wednesday afternoon in Tokyo.

Wanda is flying home to Calgary, Alberta tonight but hopefully not before Theresa returns from surgery.  Theresa's baby sister has made a world of difference this past week, not just for Theresa's care but also for my support.  Wanda fit right in with the Queen's Medical Center ICU nurses and they had a wonderful exchange of dialogue and ideas.  Additionally, the attending Trauma and Surgery Critical Care physicians and residents treated Wanda like one of their own, asking her opinion and listening to her ideas about Theresa's care.  Everyone here will miss Wanda and we wish her a safe flight home.  By the next time Wanda returns, Theresa will be up and about and giving the rehabilitation therapists fits, if last time was any indicator.  Thank you to God for bringing Wanda to us this past week, one of many angels that came in answer to our prayers.
