Gabe is DONE!

We just met with the surgeon.  He said the surgery went very well and Gabe was a champ.  We were expecting 5-8 hours, but he was finished in less then 4!

We are waiting for them to close him up and then get settled in the ICU.  We should be able to see him in the next hour.  He will remain under sedation until around midnight and then they will try to wake him up to get the breathing tube out.

Please continue to pray as the next few hours are critical.  We are praying for no bleeding and that his heart pressures will be able to tolerate the adjustments.  I also ask that you would pray for Andrew and I as seeing Gabe with so many tubes and wires will not be easy.

Hooray for good news! Still praying! Will they even let him wake up tonight? I hope you will see his eyes soon!
