Summer went into surgery about 7:45am this morning and was out at 1:15pm. The area where people are prepped for surgery was crazy loud, which was a bit distracting and therefore good. The anesthesiologist came by, and Summer’s surgeon, Dr. Allan Stewart, called her on the phone for a brief discussion. About 12:15pm, when Dr. Stewart finished his key part of the operation, he sought out Mom to give her back Summer’s iPhone camera. The surgeons had used her camera in the OR to take pictures of her open chest, heart, the bad aorta, and the general course of the operation. We’ll sure she’ll post one or two. Her surgeon said “Perfect”. So far, no untoward developments. We expect Summer to come out of the ICU by tomorrow (Thursday) noon, but maybe even have some tubes removed as early as tonight or first thing in the morning. That is a huge moment.
