More Breaking News

George is out of recovery and in a room. Apparently the other person was finally discharged. Yay. So his wife and mom are with him and say that he is tired (well duh) and eating ice chips.

And to top it all off, Christopher is now out of surgery and this is the latest update from Shannon:

The surgeon just came by. He is pleased with the outcome of the transplant. 

The bladder is small but working. Yay! 

He placed a stint to help with the large amounts of urine but it will only need to be in for 6 weeks. 

I am waiting for the call that will allow me to see Christopher. Hopefully around 8 pm.  

I have reminded myself many times today that it is God who determines our days. May Christopher's life bring honor and glory to his Maker!

Wow. All great news. And what a day this has been, long and eventful, but now winding down.

George and Christopher are recovering.  All systems seem to be 'go' and God is to be praised.

If you are curious and want to know a few more details about the surgeries that were done today, I found a 2 minute 48 second video that tells of a similar event albeit in older folks.  But the principles are the same.
