Witt is scheduled first for surgery tomorrow morning! An emergency or an organ becoming available could still bump him but this is the closes he has come! Dr. Macicek came by and answered all of Melanie's questions. He also warned Mel that Witt could get pretty "sick" from this surgery. If Dr. Morales chooses to look directly at the valve in the heart and repair it, Witt will go on the heart bypass machine. That will be hard on Witt's lungs. Dr. Macicek said they will want Witt off ventilator as soon as possible but that could be days. Witt could go from the CVICU to the PICU then to the floor. Please pray that God will heal the valve...that just looking with the scope is good enough! Pray for the surgeons...that they get rest tonight and come in tomorrow with fresh minds! I will update with any changes or with more information as I get it!
