We arrived at Balboa Hospital at 5:30 this morning for Jim’s surgery. He was very nervous about going in for this surgery. He was hoping they would give him an IV cocktail before doing the epidural but no such luck. He has several Drs working together for this surgery; 2 Orthopedic and 2 Trauma Surgeons, plus 1 Orthopedic Resident and 2 nurses assisting. They took him into surgery at 7:30 and started the procedure around 9am. Please keep Jim and the dr’s in your prayers today.
