Kendall made it out of surgery around 4.  The surgeon was able to remove all of what was in her spinal column and chase it out a little ways as well.  He commented that the tumor was bigger than what it appeared to be on the scans.  

Everything went picture perfect.  Right now we are in PICU.  She will be here for at least 2 days.  He wants her to lay completely flat for those two days to prevent her spinal fluid from putting pressure on the part where he had to go in.  After PICU, we will move to the neurosurgery floor.  

Right now we are just trying to control her pain.  She has a PCA with a button that we can push every 10 minutes as well as a continuous drip of pain medication.  They are also giving her precedex to keep her slightly sedated so she doesn't want to get up.  

I ended up picking the lucky straw and getting a key to one of the sleep rooms.  Matt will stay in the room with Kendall tonight.  
Thanks everyone for all of the prayers and well wishes.  We truly appreciate them!
