Update from Rachel...

We met with the surgeon today and he explained Kaden's surgery to us. Kaden will be headed into the OR at 7 a.m. tomorrow. The surgeon said it would take somewhere around 4-6 hours depending on how long it takes the anesthesiologist to get the iv's and lines in. After surgery he will be moved to PICU, and they will keep him asleep for several days and on a breathing tube until the swelling in his chest goes down. After it goes down they will close his chest up and let him start to wake up. After he is stable he will get his own room or be moved back to NICU until he goes home. If everything goes well he will be released from the hospital about 10 days after surgery. There is about a 93% success rate with this surgery and Kaden should have no restrictions on playing sports or anything like that after he gets older.
