Alexander Update

Surgery to repair Alexander's aorta today was successful. The operation took approximately 4 hours, and was performed by Dr. Henry (Hal) Walters III at the Children's Hospital of Michigan at the DMC. Dr. Walters is considered one of the best if not the best pediatric heart surgeons in Michigan according to our sources. Alex remains on a feeding tube, breathing machine, and under anesthesia in the PICU. We hope he makes progress tomorrow and can open his eyes.
