Surgery began around 11:30 am . . . which means he'll be done about 2:30 and in recovery for about an hour. Assuming all goes well, we'll see him again about 3:30.
Just finished eating lunch and visiting with our friend Heather, who is a nurse supervisor on one of the floors. Tauni, our friend who is a nurse in ICU, is also around and we look forward to seeing her too. The distraction is nice.
Here are some photos from the morning of our cute little patient in his teeny-tiny hospital gown and yellow booties. Our 20-month old field tester has deemed the booties "unfit for patient use," however, as they fell off within 30 seconds of putting them on.
More when we know more . . .
