Nurse Marie is here at the hospital and so graciously let me use her laptop to update the blog. Claire's had a good morning. She did great during her pre-op stuff and was so cute in the little hospital gown that was way too big. They took her back around 8:30 am. Around 9:45 am the NP came out and said they had cut put all of her IV lines in and she was asleep and stable. They had cut through the breast bone. As of now they said they had started surgery at 10:10 am. I don't think they have started bypass yet. The NP is supposed to come out and let us know when that happens.
Thank you for all of the prayers. We are updating Facebook as we can and we will try to update on the blog if a computer is available.
Claire may be able to donate part of her thymus (something they have to remove part of anyways for the surgery) to a child who needs it. We may be part of this study, but we are waiting for a nurse to talk to us about it.
