Erin Update Day of Surgery - 6:30 AM

Rob was kicked out of Erin's room very late last night, so he slept at the motel. Deb called David's and my room at 5:40 this morning to say the hospital called and asked if I wanted to go see Erin with them this morning before the surgery. Of course I said YES! We had 20 minutes to get ready. 15 minutes later she phoned and said the hospital called and were taking Erin down early to the OR so Rob ran over there, while Deb fed Mackenzie. David, Deb and I are going to the hospital while Ron watches the kids this moring. We probably won't stay real long, but we want to be there a bit for Rob. Ron, Deb and I talked to Erin this morning and she is doing good under the circumstances. She was in the waiting room of the OR waiting her turn when she called. More later...........

Thanks Diane for all the great updates. It's so hard to just sit and wait and wait and wait.
Give Erin our love and our prayers are always with her. Thank God the tumor didn't invade the carotid artery!
Our love to all the family!
