Checking in

Its 5:30 am. We just arrived to get Courtney checked in for surgery. They have taken him back to get changed and start his IVs. Surgery will begin at 7 am. During surgery they will do a liver resection and remove the tumors in his liver. They will leave the healthy portions of the liver. The liver is so amazing, that most of it can be removed and it can still regenerate itself.  They anticipate the surgery will take about 2 hours. The surgeons have said they will update us about halfway through the surgery. I will send updates as I have them.
