He is out of surgery now, and all closed up.

I have a post op picture - I won't post it. Let's just say it is heart breaking.

He is a tough tough kid, I have no doubt he will recover, but it is really difficult seeing him like that.

Everything is functioning the way it should, now it is on to the hard road of recovery.

I have a rare disease and had to have a fairly major surgery when I was 10 years old. My biggest worries were waking up during surgery and making it back for baseball season. Neither happened. Only now as a parent I can understand what everyone else was going through.

Quick update - he is off the ventilator already, squeezed his mom's hand, and was asking for a drink!

He is such a strong kid!

Thank you again for all the well wishes and good vibes.
