Surgery Update

Hello,
We just got another update....surgery area has been hectic today, so the updates have been scarce. His cardiologist actually just came in as I started typing. The actual surgery part is over and all went well. He is off bypass already (the heart/lung machine that pumps his blood outside of his body while the heart is worked on). I guess his heart was a bit sluggish when coming off bypass. It will take another hour and a half to finish things up.....make sure there's no bleeding, close him up, take breathing tube out, etc.

We just met another family whose kiddo is having the Glenn as well. It's actually more of an emergency Glenn....one that almost cancelled Braden's surgery today.

We'll continue to post as we know more.
Thanks for surrounding us with your love, support, prayers, and positive thoughts. We're holding up pretty well.
Steph
