Liam went back to the OR about 20 minutes ago. They said the surgery would probably take about 5 hours. I am suprised at how non-emotional I am today - they did give Liam some Versed to help calm him down, so that was good. He was in good spirits this morning and very happy, despite his early morning wake-up call.
We still haven't met with the surgeon, he is supposed to come by any minute. But we feel comfortable doing this again. We spoke with his assistant and she said they would be replacing his homograft conduit with a Contegra conduit. This one is supposed to function well in cases where the homografts have failed in the past.
I will keep updates going as much as possible today. Thank you all for your prayers!
