Karsie is in Surgery
We just got back from watching Karsie go into surgery. The process will take a couple of hours, so it will be a while before we have much to update. The surgeon told us he would send word at some point to the nurses in the NICU to let us know how everything is progressing, so we might have something for you in about an hour or so.
Dr. Saenz, the on-call surgeon and our original surgeon called us and explained that he was of the opinion it would be better to do it today when they have openings, a team ready, and while the siloh is still working as it's supposed to. Karsie looked well when we saw her and since there's really no benefit to waiting until Tuesday (actually it seemed that it might have been a setback) we all decided it would be best to do it today.
It sounds like there is not going to be much fidgeting with the organs and they are just going to be putting the patch over them.
We appreciate the prayer given the short notice, and we ask that if you think of someone that might not know and be interested to let them know. Thank you so much. Talk to you soon...
