At 9am Kelly, the Nurse Practitioner, came by to let us know that they were starting the first incision. This process alone could take a while because of the scar tissue build-up.
At 10:45am, Kelly talked to us again. They got through the scar tissue and are looking at the vessels around the heart now. No decision yet on which route he will take – whether all four chambers will work and do the job they were designed to do, or if all four chambers will work, but the ventricles will be doing the other’s job. She is currently on bypass.
Hopefully we have an additional update between 12:30p and 1p.
For now, we wait.
