James doing well!

Thank you for all the kind words and prayers for James. He is doing well. He is in the ICU and being kept under tonight. He has a lot of swelling and they want that to go down before they move him to a room. His dad and other sister came to visit him today too.

I hear his nurse is "just a dear", so he is definitely in good hands. He isn't receiving any visitors besides family while in the ICU since he can't talk with the tube in his mouth, but hopefully that will be out in a day or so.

I thought Michelle Esteban did such a fantastic job on the story Thursday night. It was so touching and I loved having a little birds eye view into the OR. I am absolutely thrilled that James did so well in the surgery and is on his road to recovery.

This is a monumental day thanks to ALL OF YOU! I could not do it alone, a few of us couldn't do it, it required a community of friends near and far to do it. Thank you for bringing this day to James!

Went into Safeway where James works tonight and talked with one of the workers there and he seemed pretty excited for James. I Can't wait till he gets back to work.
