From Julian's COTA journal.

5:50 p.m.

The surgeon just came out again to tell us that Julian is in the PICU and looking good. He'll be chemically sedated and on a ventilator for the next 24+ hours, in order to ensure the health of the new kidney. The kidney works and is producing urine as anticipated. They did a few other things which I'll go into later, but all in all it seems that the surgery was a success. We should be able to see him in 10-15 minutes.

Stacy went to pop in on Cheryl to see how she's progressing. Hopefully she's feeling better and able to rest. More on her later as well.

For now, it's time to pack up and get ready to go see Julian.
