Successful Surgery!

Maddy's surgery completed about 45 minutes ago and she is doing well. There was an immediate improvement in her blood pressure, and she tolerated the surgery well. Elaine and I were oddly comforted by the fact that the surgeon was a bald German man who looked and sounded remarkably like our good friend Stephan Kissler. (We hear that Stephan can reduce dislocations, maybe he can also perform heart surgery?)

Milo also saw very good improvements today. After a terrible day yesterday, he is back on a ventilator and doing very well on relatively low levels of oxygen. He is also enjoying a little peace and quiet in a separate room from Maddy for now, but the twins will probably be reunited in the next few days.

Stay tuned for more information and pictures.
