Justin's surgery

My nephew, Justin, had open heart surgery yesterday and many of you have asked how he's doing, so here's some info.

The surgery went well and Molly said he already looks more pink. (He's always had a bit of a blue color.) When they cut into the large muscle it kind of short-circuited his electrical system, so he's on a pacemaker. That will double his expected stay from 4-5 days to 8-10.

It sounds like they were able to do everything they needed to in order to re-plumb his heart. Our prayers are with them for a speedy and full recovery!
