Jett's big day

It's 9:30 a.m. and Jett is currently in surgery.

We are told that it should take between 6-10 hours. When he awoke this morning he was his usual chipper self, though a bit frustrated that he wasn't allowed to eat.

More to come...

UPDATE: Just before noon and Jett is out of surgery way ahead of schedule. It couldn't have gone better. We are now waiting to talk to the doctor and then we'll get to see the little champion.

UPDATE #2: In the room with Jett right now. These next 12 hours are the most critical. There are nurses and specialists flowing in and out if the room constantly. The various equipment and machines which monitor little Jett ceaselessly beep and buzz. There's not much else that we can do for him right now, so we're going to eat and try to get some rest.

UPDATE #3: 6:20 p.m. Jett is resting peacefully, being monitored now by his own personal nurse. The circus is over, and by doctor's orders for the next 48 hours, Jett is to have no stimulation. That means we can't talk to him or touch him. We are now sitting on a couch by his bed whispering as quietly as possible. The last time the doctor examined him he remarked how well Jett was doing. Looks like the little guy made it.
