05.20.2008 - 45 Minutes

From Julian's COTA journal.

3:30 p.m.

The floor chaplain just dropped by, said she heard that the PICU has received their 45 minute notice, which means that Julian's surgery is almost finished. Much earlier than anticipated - about 4 hours rather than 8. Hopefully that's good news...

Okay, now we just spoke w/ the waiting room attendant, who has the phone numbers for all the operating rooms. She called and confirmed that yes, the kidney is in, but they haven't closed yet, as they're still observing function. She assured us, though, that everything is going well. They should be closing soon (we hope), and then we'll get the call that he's in the PICU. Probably another hour or more.
