Surgery Day- 1st update

They took Cohen back around 8 a.m. for the surgery. We were told it should take around 4 hours to complete everything. Dr. Wooten, our ENT doctor already came out and talked to us. He performed a bronchostomy before the surgery actually got started. He said Cohen's anatomy looked pretty good, but he did note he has a smaller than normal and oddly shaped airway. It looks more like a football shape than a round hole. Hopefully, this will grow right along with him, but we will have to have him rechecked in 6 months to make certain.  It will be an outpatient surgery type procedure to check.
He said that Cohen will be more likely to be sicker if he got the flu, RSV or anything like that. We kindof already expected that due to the chronic lung disease. We will just have to be careful.

I will keep updating as we get more info. Thank you for the continued prayers.
