6 hours and counting

Jack is still in surgery. It took close to 2 hours just to get all of his lines in (not surprising). Even though he went back 6 hours ago, he is only about 3 hours into the surgery (from the time of the first "cut"). I could give you a bunch of details, but it's probably more than you want to know. Jack is one of the bigger cases of the day ... so, we get one of the private waiting rooms. Bonus day! It's a very small room with no windows. Kind of reminds me of my office at work - I almost feel at home (sorry guys, couldn't resist :-) The picture is of Jack and me right before he was wheeled off to surgery. I'll update later tonight.

Hi Ann, I recognize that smile of yours; it's the "I'm scared $#@*less but I'm being brave for my kid" smile! David and I have been "with" you all day today, hoping to hear another update soon. Please give Jack a kiss for us and know the prayers will continue.
