One of the surgeons finally came up and told us Perry is still with us. The issue was with the same mammary artery, but in a different place. During the procedure he did go into cardiac arrest for 13 minutes, but they were able to bring him back. He is now closed up and just returned to the ICU. Misty, Michael, Ryan and Kim will be staying for the remainder of the night to be sure he continues to be stable. The surgeon said his chest tubes are not producing much at this point which means the bleeding is under control at this moment.
We can not thank you all enough for the tremendous amount of support. It has been a long day for all and of course we will keep you all posted as there are still some long days ahead.
