Jacob got through his surgery with flying colors! Thanks for all of your prayers. We were a little unsure when they gave him the "margarita" meds and he started standing on the bed. I guess it did not have the effect they were looking for, but once they got him sedated, it all went well. One hour later, we hung out with him in the recovery room (that is only iodine on his skin) until he woke up. About a half an hour later he woke up and drank some juice and we got the ok to take him home. He has been asleep the whole day except to have a little chicken noodle soup and pudding. He will be having the device turned on on Wednesday morning.
The incisions are small and should heal quickly. Now we wait to see if the VNS works for Jacob. So don't stop the prayers, for we still need them everyday.
Elizabeth and Trey
