Surgery is underway. They took Liam back at 7:00 am on the dot, and the nurse just came out and told us they just made the incision. She said it will take a little while to cut through the scar tissue and get through the chest bone, but that Liam was doing great so far.
Liam had an ok night. He slept as much as he could with nurses coming in and out to check him all night. He woke this morning about 5 am bright eyed and bushy tailed, babbling and giggling to himself... That made me smile. We had about 30 minutes of snuggle time before he had to get a scrub bath and then we headed down to the OR about 6:30.
They are estimating the surgery to be finished by 1:00 pm or so. I'll try to keep posting as we are updated every hour or so by the nurse.
