Update 2

R is out of surgery and will be heading up to the CICU shortly.  We should be able to see him in about two hours.

We just met with the surgeon, who gave a good report.  The surgery was pretty straightforward with a few unexpected hiccups.  There was an additional Atrial Septal Defect that had to be patched as well as a rare Bilateral Superior Vena Cava (the latter is simply a technicality in R's physical makeup -- it just changed a few things about the actual procedure).

Both issues were successfully dealt with and he has been stitched up.

He did a great job and we will know more about his recovery over the next 24 hours.

We will update more once we see him and meet with the doctors.
