The big day

Or as Nick keeps reminding me: step one of 493. We checked into the hopsital at 10:15am. The surgeon, Dr. Scaiffe answered any final questions and told us to expect the surgery to last 4-6 hours. We said bye to Charlie and prepared for the long wait. After a few hours, they called to let us know that he indeed did have biliary atresia and that they would procede with the Kasai. around 5pm Charlie was out of surgery and admitted to the PICU (pediatric intensive care unit). His nurses were wonderful. Between Nick, myself and grandparents, Charlie was never left alone.
