    Update

    This is Jamie's husband Jay -

    Jamie's surgery went very well. Dr. Errico Told me that there was minimal bleeding and that he was able to achieve a great correction. The surgery took about 5 hours and she only spent a few hours in recovery before they brought her up to her room. She was able to sleep through most of the night and is doing pretty good this morning.
