Sorry for no updates there for a while. At 3:45 I came back from the ladies room to see Dr. Whittemore sitting there talking with Mark. Dr. W. showed us some footage from the procedure and described the complex and microscopic work he had to do in order to clean out the nasty cholesteatoma completely without damaging her tiny ear bones (which were unharmed by the growth, so that's great!).
From there it was directly to recovery where we spent another 90 or so minutes while Linny came to and while we waited for a room to become available. Sooooo....here we are, up in the room, watching Madagascar Penguins and drinking ginger ale. As you can see, Linny's doll also fared well.
Thanks to everyone for their prayers and good thoughts--they worked!!!
