So hip to be Jack

Jack is officially in surgery with the first procedure being a success.

The first procedure was performed by Dr. Lim (AKA Supreme Lifesaver) which was to remove granulation tissue from around his g-tube. Dr. Lim reported that Jack is comfortable and looks good. He also added that his last lung x-ray looked great and he has full inflation of both lungs and at rest shows that he needs no oxygen assistance what so ever.

The next procedure is the hip surgery which is pretty routine but will involve several incisions and bone manipulations. The surgery should last about 3 hours and the casting could last up to an hour and a half.

I will keep you all updated on his progress.
