Sister Moldenhauer called me just shortly after Emily came out of surgery. She was still not yet awake and Sister Moldenhauer figured it would be about an hour before they could see her and then a couple more hours before they could take her home. So my guess is that Emily will probably go home sometime mid afternoon.
The surgeon said everything went really well and that the gallbladder was indeed diseased and even had some lesions on it so it was definitely the right decision to remove it. He said Emily should feel much better now. I think they are going to keep Emily at the mission home through the weekend and she then has a followup doctor's appointment on Monday.
Sister Moldenhauer said Emily did really well leading up to the surgery. She got a blessing last night and was fine this morning when they took her to the hospital. She said Emily is a different person and that although everyone experiences growth on their mission, Emily's has been huge and she is not the same scared little girl they had arrive at the mission home back in September.
Sister Moldenhauer also told me that if Emily feels she needs to call me later today then she will let her call me but if she is doing fine and does not need to talk to me than I may not hear from her which I am just fine with that. I am so proud of this kid, she just keeps climbing over those mountains!
Thank you all for your prayers.
