6:15 - We arrived at the Children's Hospital. Caydence was in a very good mood and really happy and rambuncious.
7:40 - Caydence was given some tylenol and some medicine to make her a little sedated.
7:55 - Josh took Caydence back to the operating room. They gave her some anesthesia and she was put to sleep.
10:00 - It took them 2 hours to get her all hooked up and ready and we were notified that they had made the incision.
11:10 - She was put on the bypass machine.
12:50 - We got an update from the nurse that she is still on the bypass machine and surgery is going well. They estimate they will be able to take her off in about an hour and then close her up and move to recovery.
1:30 - We just got word that she is off the bypass machine. They are doing some testing to make sure the surgery is working well and are expecting to close her up shortly!
3:45 - Surgery was a SUCCESS!!! Josh and I just went in to see her :) She is still on the ventilator to give her lungs a rest. So they have her heavily sedated. But plan on taking out the vent in the morning. They were able to use her own tissue for the repair and so far it is looking great. We still have a long way to go and I'm sure it will be a rollercoaster, but as of right now, everything looks GOOD!
Keep Caydence in your prayers and check back for updates...
