Surgery Update: no. 2

The nurse just came with an update, and so far so good.  Everything is going according to plan. She estimated that they are about half-way done.  The surgeon is currently patching the tunnel with a piece of Preston's pericardium.  We are waiting to hear about the location of the right coronary artery and whether it will need to be re-implanted as well as the function of the mitral and aortic valves and whether they need some kind of repair.  Keep those prayers coming. They mean the world to us.

Love this look of determination.
