Zoe is out of the OR and doing well. The team is getting her set up in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. As soon as she is awake and alert enough, they will attempt to remove the breathing tube. Hopefully, the first time we see her, she will be breathing on her own.
We met with Dr. Spray just minutes ago. He went ahead and performed the Hemi-Fontan due to the large patch required from the left pulmonary artery to her lung. She had quite a bit of scar tissue from the Norwood, which is why the surgery "took so long."
We hope to see her within the next half hour, after she's settled in her crib.
After the great news, the first coherent sentence out of Stacey's mouth (all morning) was, "I need some guacamole."
