We just finished talking to the transplant surgeon and, in short, everything went as smoothly as possible. Eddie went to the OR around 1:30am and over the next three and a half hours was put on heart/lung bypass and had his Berlin Heart "decommissioned." The heart arrived at 5am and Dr. Cohen was able to implant it, make the five connections (superior vena cava, inferior vena cava, aorta, pulmonary arteries, and coronary arteries) and close Eddie's chest is about 90 minutes.
This has been a truly miraculous night for us. We are getting ready to see Eddie right now. We love you!
