I got to the hospital at seven that morning, they had let us know that they would be taking him down to Pre-Op about 11:30- 11:45. Jason was still laying there looking cool, calm and collected! They took him down at the scheduled time, before that time everyone was in to see him off. I think I must have kissed him 10 times...in a row! All the family went to the surgery waiting area, and tried to stay busy talking, eating..etc. We didn't hear anything until 4:00- 4:30 PM. They called to say that they were just starting to open him up now. They called again at 7:30 and told us, that the surgery went great, and that he would be going to the Cardiac ICU shortly. Patty and I just hugged each other..HE MADE IT THROUGH!
