Open Heart: Fontan: Off the bypass machine

Update:  1:00 pm - Abby is OFF the bypass! That was much faster than expected.  It'll take the surgeon about 1 1/2 hours to close up.  Whew.

11:29 am  She is successfully on the heart/lung bypass machine

11:03 am There is a lot of scar tissue and so getting in is slow going. She is not yet on the heart/lung bypass.  We are thinking that this may take more like 8-10 hours total.  She is doing really well.
