John is in the PICU and looking great! He is very groggy but will open his eyes and whisper a little. The surgery team said all went well and that all the nurses are charmed by him. He will be in here overnight and possibly all day tomorrow, then off to a regular room. His nurse, Kate, is very nice. We will get a new nurse at 7 pm for overnight. Mom can spend the night in a dorm-like room downstairs. Dad will go home and get some sleep. Tomorrow we plan to be at the bedside by 6pm for rounds.
He just asked daddy for some water! He can't have any right now and hopefully the pain mess will knock him back out.
Many thanks for everything. The prayers and good thoughts worked!
