Dr. Golden Hands

Thank you everyone for your posts to the blog, phone messages and good vibes! Evan had his first surgery today and everything went well. Dr. Weiner has done a decent amount of work in Italy and they have a nickname for him that translates to "golden hands". Can't ask for more than that!

Dr. Weiner said he was able to see the tuber he's going to remove and feels really confident about the next surgery. He expected this surgery to take about three hours and he was done in half the time! Evan was in his room at 3:00 and he's pretty wiped out and sleeping soundly so far.

That's the basic update, I'll post more later.

Okay, now it's time for you and Rob to get some rest, too. Give Evan a day or two, and he'll have you two running about!

Let us know if you need anything,
Rosette & Bryan
