UPDATE at 12:05: Eli is all down and in the ICU.They are working on getting him settled and then we can go and see him!
UPDATE at 11:15: The repair is still going well. They are beginning to warm him. They are going to do an esophageal study, if all looks well they will begin to take him off bypass. We still don't know if they needed to work on his Pulmonary arteries, the NP is going to check on it and let us know. Things are going well!
UPDATE at 10:00: All the lines are in. He is on bypass and doing well. They are beginning to open his chest and starting to repair his AV canal.
We are here at the hospital in the waiting room. Our bet friends are here with us keeping us entertained. Eli was taken into surgery about an hour ago. We are expecting our first update around 9am.
