We met with Dr. Haw today and Lincoln's OR nurse. We received another drawing of Lincoln's heart defects, and Dr. Haw agrees it is time. We'd been led to believe that Lincoln would need another surgery shortly after, but according to Dr. Haw, it is possible that if everything goes well, this could solve all of his issues, and he could lead a normal life. There are, however, a laundry list of possible scenarios and Dr. Haw said he will not know until he is in the actual surgery. He said that Lincoln will be in surgery a minimum of four hours and at least two hours of post-op procedures before we can see him.
Visitors are not recommended for at least the first few days depending on his situation and if they need to do another surgical repair. Thanks for your prayers and positive thoughts. Please pray that Dr. Haw only needs to do a basic surgery to heal Lincoln's heart, and that there are no complications.
