Twenty-Two-and-a-Half Hours Later...

4:00 AM:
Dr. T came up and told us that , although he could not be certain, he had done his best to achieve his goal of removing all of the tumor without harming Henry. Only time, and still more tests, will tell. Dr. T was going to observe him as he came out of the anesthesia, to look for any signs of post-surgical stroke due to possible trauma of a main artery.

5:30 AM:
We finally join Henry in his room in the Pediatric ICU: air tubes, nasal clearing tube, catheter, BP monitor, heart monitor, blood oxygen monitor, thermometer, 5 IVs, looking battered, bloodied and beautiful.

6:30 AM:
With Mama in a cot and Dad in a chair:
Good Night.

To our Super Hero Henry and his Bionic Parents,
What an epic day! Thanks for keeping us posted on the progress. Even from 2000 miles away, it made it feel like we were close. We are crossing all fingers and toes and sending lots of prayers for good news over the coming days.
