Surgery 1.0 :-(

Aidan is getting his surgery today and now is when he will really need your prayers. After waking up at 3:30am we gave Aidan a pre-op scrub down with special soap and got him cleaned up before his surgery. We arrived at the hospital at 5:30am and had to get him checked in and answer all the questions to get him ready for surgery. Aidan will have his esophagus stretched today and will remain under anesthesia and pharmacological paralysis for the duration of his stretching. Basically he will not be able to move or wakeup at all for the next 9-14 days. It will be really tough visiting him as he will not esentially be there. We are waiting on news and will keep you posted throughout the day.
