Surgery 1.1

Aidan's surgery is doing good. The Nurse Anesthetist just came out for a break and wanted to let us know the surgery was progressing well. His hemoglobin level dropped slightly but she thinks it's due to all the IV fluids that have been diluting his red blood cell level. He has lost very little blood so far and Dr. Foker is working on setting up the distal esophagus for stretching. The distal esophagus is very small and takes the most time to setup for stretching. the top part will be setup for stretching as well but since it's more muscular it's quite easy to stretch.
