Surgery finished around 1:00 p.m. and went successfully! Everything went as planned. He is in recovery now and will probably be groggy or out for the rest of the day. They are trying to keep him sedated for pain. It will take a few days to a few weeks before we know if the surgery will actually fix the problems. So, thanks for the prayers and keep praying!!!!
Jason Update: We came back from dinner around 6, and he was awake, alert, and in a lot of pain. He still has his sense of humor but was obviously struggling. We had the nurse administer some codeine and he seemed to do better. He will spend the rest of the night in the ICU, but we fully expect him to be moved to a regular room tomorrow.
