We arrived at the hospital bright and early- Brooke did so well with the hand-off. Gave everyone hugs and said "love you". We just received word that they have started surgery and are currently getting through scar tissue. She has quite a bit from her first surgery in China, so they told us it might be 1-2 hours until they are able to get to her actual heart to begin the procedure.
Please keep praying that she remains stable, that the surgeons will have patience and skill to remove the scar tissue from around her heart and sternum, and that they will be able to access her heart quickly and with ease to be able to complete the surgery as quickly as possible. We will update once we know Brooke is on the heart/lung machine. Thank you for your prayers!
