Done With Surgery

Avery is out of surgery and back in her room. She was in surgery for about 5 hours. We got updates every hour from one of the surgical assistants, but we have not spoken directly with Dr. Jaquiss yet. He should be in shortly.

Avery is off of ECMO and appears to be doing ok for now. They will be watching her very closely for the next couple of days. We are exhausted and ready to get back to the house and relax a little. Thanks so much for all your prayers.
