Fontan Surgery Update #3

Colin is doing well, the surgeon did have to put a few stitches in both the right and the left AV canal valves. But the good news in the surgeon is happy with it and they got his heart started back up right away (the fear with the valves is they have to stop his heart and there are complications with starting it back up.) Thank God we did not have any problems getting his heart back up and started. 

They are completing the Fontan surgery now. After they finish, we should be able to see him in a couple hours after they finish. He will be a little doped up still but he will be on and off awake. We should be in a regular room hopefully in a day or 2.
