Today was the day. Erin woke up with a strong head and complete determination to get this surgery over and done with. Honestly, I'm super impressed at how little she seemed to worry. My mom and Dan came with her this morning, and my dad, myself and Erin's mother-in-law joined in on the waiting room fun. It took about 5.5 hours, but the surgeons assured us that everything went great. Erin is currently settled into her room and seems to be managing the pain pretty well- with a quick trigger finger to the morphine, of course! We are all incredibly proud of the decision she's made. Being that I have not made the decision to get tested yet myself, seeing my big sister face this head on has been a huge inspiration. Here's to a speedy recovery for the most awesome previvor I know!
