The Doctors have scheduled Will's surgery for tomorrow morning. He should be the first surgery in the morning unless a more critical case comes in. Will's condition is very good. He is healthy and stable, so he is always at risk of being bumped on the schedule for a more critical case. Will is still on the vent, but he is breathing on his own over the vent. In fact, he has tried to pull his tube out. But, they need to keep him on the vent for the surgery. Today will be a hard day for the family since they are not allowed to touch Will today. He is very alert and responds to his family, but the Doctors don't want him stimulated today so as to prepare him for surgery tomorrow.
Connie and Al were just notified that they were able to get a room at the Ronald McDonald House. This will be a great solution for them so they can still be near Will, but have a little bit of space to just be a family. Nana plans to stay at the hospital for now. She doesn't want to be too far away.
We'll post with any changes or updates. Thanks again for all your prayers!
