Surgery day!

Luke did great today! He had a rough start - up at 4 am local time and no food until after surgery. I did get him some chill drugs as soon as we checked in and things went well after that.  The surgery lasted about 3.5 hours in total and I got updates throughout.

He is eating and drinking (stir fry and a smoothie) and on a good pain mgt regiment. 

Thank you all for the prayers. / offers of help, etc. when you have 4 kids in 5 years, ppl either step up or step out of your life. I cherish everyone of you that has stepped up. If you are reading this you are a step up friend. And we want you to know that we appreciate all of you that are supporting and just loving Luke and our family!!

OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I knew his face instantly!!! I am so very very very happy you and your son found each other!!!! Lin Gao was referred to us last year before you found him!! We knew in our hearts another family was meant to be his family and this is proof positive! He was our first referral and my heart has broken ever since, not knowing.... We have since been matched to a girl in the Nanchang SWI with CHD. Oh thank God you have him!!! I found your blog searching for families going or reently been to Nanchang to adopt.
