Fort Hood hero Munley may need more surgery

Fort Hood hero and Carolina Beach native Kim Munley may need more surgery than expected. Monday night Munley wrote on her blog about a visit with her vascular surgeon. She said the doctor found only one of three veins in her leg are working properly. That means she may need bypass surgery before she gets her knee replacement surgery. Munley wrote she hopes the problem can be fixed with shunts and balloons. She also said her doctor pointed out how lucky she is the leg can be saved at all, as she went two hours without blood flow to it after the shooting.
