We didn't want to eat in front of Courtney so we went downstairs and got us some Starbucks. None of us got much sleep last night, Tyler and I only got 3 hours. Its going to be a long day, but what a relief when he is done! I will update this again as soon as the doctor comes out to update us on his progress in surgery. Any messages you leave, I will deliver to Courtney as soon as he wakes up!

The Surgery is Underway
Its 7:30 am, Courtney is in surgery. They took him back right on time at 7 am. We were all able to be there in the room before he went in. We met the anesthesiologist, she is super nice. She let us know that she would most likely have his breathing tube out before he even comes out of the OR, which was very encouraging. They gave him his Versed (i.e. liquid courage as she called it) before he went back. He was already sleepy and making jokes when they rolled him down the hall.
