1 PM Jan 9 Monday - surgery going fine. Stent in aorta placed well, Aortic valve replaced with some leakage (backflow) but no serious trouble. The one problem is that heart rate was too slow when they turned off the temporary (during surgery) pacemaker. So they are taking her back in to surgery to put in a pacemaker, a very minor procedure compared to what they have done already. Possibly two more hours until out of anesthesia.
