This scheduling of this surgery could change between now and tomorrow in the morning, but I'll update if that is the case. Either way I know MckMama would appreciate any positive thoughts or prayers for Stellan today.
I took this directly from MckMama's twitter feed:
Stellan is sedated and intubated (he's on the ventilator, which is breathing for him), will be heading into surgery any minute now. Its 7:21 am Tuesday morning, and she posted this 50 minutes prior.
Update #2 As of 8:26 am MckMama's post reflects that Stellan is in surgery now and that someone will continue to update her site. The surgery will take about 3 hours.
Update #3 @ 10:50 am: MckMama's twitter feed:
Yes it's been over three hours, no I haven't heard any update at all. 17 minutes ago
Update #4 @ 11:30: MckMama's twitter feed:
A bit of news trickled back to me: there is a lot of fluid in Stellan's lungs and tissues. 2 minutes ago
Update # 5 at 1:16 pm: MckMama's twitter feed:
I'm going to work on a post now about all the details regarding how it went. It was a complicated situation and Dr. A did the best he could. less than a minute ago
They will extubate him a bit later. He needed a blood transfusion earlier and he's still finishing that up. He looks so sweet and peaceful. about a minute ago
Stellan made it through!!! I am with him now in recovery. They are going to leave him under for a while, since the procedure took so long. 3 minutes ago
