Surgery is Underway

We arrived at the hospital at 5:30 this morning. At 7:30 when we gave him our “see-you-laters” he was excited as anything to have his bed wheeled to the OR. He’s been excited ever since we told him about this hospital stay – so much so that he had trouble going to sleep last night. His only complaint is that they haven’t given him anything to eat yet.

CHOP is doing everything to assure us that they are going to take good care of him and have solutions for any possible problem that could come up. It will be late this afternoon before he is taken to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. While that is happening we will hear directly from Dr. Kennedy, his surgeon.

The nurse just reported to us that everything is going well, slow and steady. She also told us that Matthew was very entertaining to everyone as he entered the OR! We aren’t surprised.

We are very overwhelmed and very grateful for all the support we’re receiving through your love, encouragement, and your prayers!
