We have all taken a deep breath. Ryan went to surgery sleeping on his tummy. I think 7 hours later he came out. While they were unable to close the gap today he will not have to be paralyzed (by medication) and intubated as they did a modification to the procedure. He will "Grow" his esophagus for a week or perhaps a bit longer before they attach the two pieces. It will all go much faster than we had been told was usual. I would have been really excited if they'd closed the gap but this is so much better than the original plan. Next the closure surgery!
