Earned my gold today!

K…update.  It is 5:30 our time, and I just talked to the surgeon.  Ben should be out of the OR in the next hour or so.  All the tricky stuff is done – they are just wrapping things up.  The surgeon was pleased with how the surgery went.  We were able to do both the osteotomy (cutting out a pizza wedge shape of bone) from the neck as well as two rods down his thoracic spine that should expand as he grows.  I will give more details probably tomorrow.    Thanks so much for all your support, thoughts, and prayers!  🙂
