Will's surgery has been moved to around noon tomorrow. Connie and Al will get to spend about an hour with Will tomorrow morning holding him before the surgery then around 11am they will begin prepping him for surgery. The surgery is expected to last 3-4 hours. The surgery will be an open chest surgery. They will have to stop Will's heart and put him on a bypass machine. The part of the aorta that is too narrow will be removed and the aorta will then be sewn back together. They will also be checking the two holes that are between the ventricles and repairing them if needed. Will also has some issues with one of his valves, but they will not be repairing that at this time. He will likely need to have that repaired at a later time when he is bigger.
While Connie and Al are very anxious to have the surgery done, they are also dreading what their little baby will be going through. Please pray for them to have a peace that passes all understanding tomorrow!
