Surgery started

Surgery is happening as you read this.

We walked Ms. Zoe down the hall to the OR door, then daddy handed her over to the anesthesiologist. We were then taken to meet with Dr. Spray.

Things were delayed a bit, surgery was scheduled for 8:30, but didn't get started until about 9:45.

We should have our first update at 10:45 Eastern Time.

The first part of the actual surgery, and one of the longest components, is cutting open her chest and cutting away the scar tissue from the first surgery. When cutting they have to remove enough scar tissue to access the heart but they also have to be careful not to damage the two main nerves that are in that area, one that controls the voice box and the other that controls the diaphragm.

More updates soon.
