At 2:30 the surgery room called in the waiting room to let us know that they got the lines all in. They said Jaden was doing well but it was quite a challenge to get the lines in. The next step then was to get through all of his scar tissue just to get to his heart. I posted a picture below of his chest right before we left the house. Pretty massive. They now just called to let us know they finally got through the scar tissue. It took them 1 hour and 45 minutes just to get through his scar tissue. That was very long. Jaden is now on Bypass and they are going to be starting on his heart. So many prayers as this is the critical time for concentration and accuracy. What the Bypass does is keep Jaden alive. They have to cool his body very cold so they can stop his heart to work on it. Strength for Jaden and all of us as we wait here for him. Here with our family is; grandma Rose, Auntie Robyn, Grandpa Kurt & Mattie, great Aunt Diane and friend of the family Candise. Tia Kelly and baby Whitney will be coming later and Uncle Ryan is at home sick. He and his family will be coming later in the week. We will update when something else happens.
