George now six hours into surgery.
UPDATE (7:20pm): 8 hours now. This is major surgery. We heard via the anesthetist that it’s going to plan and that the surgeon is being very thorough.
I don’t know how the staff have the stamina.
UPDATE (8:20pm): 9 hours and a nurse just informed us George is STILL in surgery and they’re expecting him to be another half an hour there.
He’ll then go in to a recovery room and we’ll finally get to see our little man.
Today is the hardest day I’ve known.
It’s a mix of huge fatigue and massive adrenalin – with us climbing the walls somewhere in between.
We feel powerless. I would not recommend it.
