“We’re running a little bit behind”

Surgery was scheduled for 8:45am. Instructions were: no formula after 2:45am, clear liquids until 6:45am and NPO after 6:45am.

We were supposed to arrive by 6:45am and if you know us (well me) you know that we checked in at 6:45 on the dot. 😬

Everything went pretty quick from there. Registration then triage (his BP was super high as you know he was mad and hungry), then finished registration questions with nurse. 8:00 hit and then it was a stand still. They came in around 8:30am and told us they were running about an hour behind, not a big deal. Then around 9:30 they came back in and said it would be a little longer. Thankfully we were able to get him to sleep pretty much the whole time.

10:45am we walked him as far as we could and handed him over to his OR nurse, which amazingly enough is named Kristen. That was definitely harder for John and I than we anticipated but we know that he is in the best hand possible.

We got an update at 11:25 that he did great going back and going to sleep, that they just got started.

We will update you as soon as we know something. Surgery is supposed to be 1.5-2 hours.

Please continue to pray for Henry and the doctors working on him.
