He's Out

Jonas is out of surgery. He lost more blood than expected (400 cc), but he had a transfusion and is supposedly doing well. The surgeons say they are happy with how things turned out, and that they were able to create a significant change in the shape of his head. Because of the bone shaping they had to do and its placement, he currently has some gaps where there is no bone on the top of his head. He'll definitely have to wear a protective helmet for six weeks (maybe longer-they will reevaluate then), and over time, it's hoped that bone growth will cover those gaps. Our biggest fear is that he'll face a second surgery at some point in the future, but we're going to try not to worry about that now. We should get to go back and see him any minute now. It's been a long and exhausting day, but the scariest part is over, and I can't wait to see our little boy!
