We just got back to Will's room. Surgery went well. Will tolerated it fine. They went in and made a incision and pulled out a large amount of clotted blood. While they were there, the drs. also bronchioscoped him and got a large amounts of mucus that was probably causing his pnomonia. When your lungs can't expand, they don't get cleared so things just pile up and get infected. The drs. thought this would be a good time to do this since he was already asleep.
The surgeon said that he is going to have a long road to recovery. I just told him that Will can handle anything they want to throw at him.
Before Will went into surgery, he told us that he feels this day will be the turning point. So when we went into surgery, Tom and I felt very calm. This should make all of you calm too, right? He will probably sleep all day, except for the tests they need to run. He needs to because he didn't get any sleep last night again. Thanks for the extra prayers during surgery. Again, God is blessing us every day.
I'll update more later.
Angel and Aaron-We love you and we know it's hard to be up there but you're with us in spirit.
