They have repaired the arch and the arteries successfully.  They are now in the process of connecting her new heart.  The nurse that came in and checked in with us said that it is 'beautiful' and that everything is going well so far.  They just need to connect the blood vessels and arch, along with part of the atrium to the new heart.  It will probably be about another hour if not more...but we are definitely one hour closer to seeing our Gracey! 

Keep the prayers coming!
love the Andersens

Way to be a good screamer Grace. This is a time that great lung power is going to pull you through.
Your mom and dad are looking forward to hearing you scream again.

So glad to hear things are progressing smoothly! I can't imagine how difficult and exciting this is for you two. Can't wait to get an update on Gracey when she's done!
